Abstract

Elbow osteoarthritis is a difficult clinical problem. As it is characterized primarily by osteophyte formation, it seems that simple removal of those osteophytes, release of the capsule, and removal of loose bodies would suffice to restore a normal range of motion. However, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Open and arthroscopic treatment yields similar results in experienced hands, but patients may have some degree of recurrence or motion loss. To improve outcomes, release of the posterior band of the medial collateral ligament and transposition of the ulnar nerve could be thoughtfully considered.
