Revision of Failed Elbow Arthroplasty

  • Bernard F. Morrey

Abstract

Over the last few years, our understanding of and techniques used to successfully revise failed arthroplasties have expanded considerably [1,2]. A broad spectrum of clinical and pathological states is encountered with the failed total elbow arthroplasty. Several specific features of the presentation are considered as the management plan is formulated (Table 1).
