The article presents a research report on the improvement of conceptual designs in elbow arthroplasty implants such as the emergence of linked, unlinked and convertible prostheses. It mentions that surgical indications continue to develop in determining which total elbow arthroplasty produces a good outcome in a certain age bracket. The study also suggests further innovation in the design of the implant due to significant complications experienced by the high-demand patients.
