Prospective comparative study of short term functional outcomes of radial head excision arthroplasty and radial head replacement arthroplasty in radial head fracture
Author(s): Dr. Madhukar, Dr. Vinoth KR and Dr. Vijay Narasimman Reddy
Abstract: The radial head is essential for the rotational stability of the forearm and resistance to valgus stress. Radial head fractures are the most common elbow fracture in adults, constituting approximately one third of all elbow fracture. Primary goal in surgical treatment is to restore elbow stability in order to preserve the complex physiologic elbow kinematics. Our study is to compare functional outcome between excision arthroplasty and replacement arthroplasty and we found no difference between functional outcomes in short term between the two modalities of treatment.
