Elbow hemiarthroplasty for acute distal humeral fractures and their sequelae: medium and long term follow-up of 41 cases
The earliest distal humeral hemiarthroplasty (EHA) implants, which date back to the late 1940s, were performed in patients with severe elbow joint injuries as an alternative to arthrodesis. After some clinical reports and case studies with a short follow-up, published in the 1990s, a new “anatomically convertible” EHA model was introduced in 2005 and became a common surgical option to treat complex elbow fractures and their sequelae.
A left comminuted clavicle fracture sustained in a polytrauma accident went on to a symptomatic malunion after a trial of non-operative management. Will thoughtful preoperative planning and operative execution lead to fracture union?
Elbow pain can range from the burning that comes with an inflamed tendon to the sharp pain of an elbow fracture.Elbow pain can have many different causes. That's why it's important to see your healthcare provider for a full evaluation. An accurate diagnosis is key to a proper treatment plan.
If the shoulder blade, or scapula, is out of position, or if there are any problems with the tendons attached to the scapula, it can cause pain and make movement difficult. Several stretches may help ease this pain.
Knee pain and swelling can be caused by a number of conditions or injuries. Among athletes, injury to the posterolateral corner (PLC) of the knee is one common cause of this type of pain.
