Radiocapitellar arthroplasty: a consecutive case series with 2 to 6 years' follow-up
Christian Spross, Wouter Jak & Roger P Van Riet
The overall Mayo Elbow Performance Score was good to excellent after radiocapitellar arthroplasty. Both the revision and reoperation rates were high, and one should consider this before performing this procedure. Loosening of the radial head component was a problem. An improved fixation technique or an adaptation of the design is needed before this type of surgery can be recommended as a standard procedure.
