The article presents information on elbow arthroscopy. Initially used for simple removal of loose bodies or examination of a painful joint, elbow arthroscopy is now being employed with greater frequency for arthritis and contractures. Potential advantages of arthroscopic treatment include improved articular visualization and decreased postoperative pain. Osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, and posttraumatic conditions can be treated arthroscopically.

    Background: Currently, arthrodesis is the most commonly performed surgical procedure for the treatment of severe arthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. The objective of this study was to compare the long-term clinical and radiographic outcomes of a metallic hemiarthroplasty with those...

    Background and Purpose: Osteoarthritis (OA) of elbow is not common but can be disabling, if it is not responding to non-operative methods. Several surgical methods are suggested (joint debridment, ulnohumeral arthroplasty, fusion and total elbow arthroplasty). In this study, we evaluated the...

    Background: Interposition arthroplasty is an option for the treatment of arthritis of the elbow. Conversion to a total elbow arthroplasty can be considered later, when the patient reaches a suitable age. We investigated the results of conversion of an interpositional elbow arthroplasty to a...

    Purpose: Patellofemoral arthroplasty remains controversial, primarily due to the high failure rates reported with early implants. Numerous case series have been published over the years detailing results of various first- and second-generation implants. The purpose of this work is to summarize...

    There has been a resurgence of interest in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) for treatment of medial unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis (OA). Improved prosthetic design, minimally invasive surgical techniques, and strict patient selection criteria have resulted in improved survivorship...

    Background: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty of the medial compartment has excellent long-term clinical outcomes. Arthritis isolated to the lateral compartment is much less common; subsequently, the clinical outcomes of the treatment of that condition are less frequently reported. Most...

    From 1981 to 1987, 77 GSB-II total knee arthroplasties were implanted in 65 patients. There were 23 men and 42 women aged on average 60 years old (range 30–85 years). The diagnosis was osteoarthritis (OA) in 21 knees, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in 44 knees, and other in 12 knees. A...

    Background: Operative contracture release may improve motion of a posttraumatic stiff elbow. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that improvement in ulnohumeral motion after elbow contracture release leads to improvement in general health status and decreases upper-extremity-specific...
