BACKGROUND: Total elbow arthroplasty is a therapeutic option for severe rheumatoid arthritis. We hypothesized that the semiconstrained characteristics of the Coonrad-Morrey prosthesis do not compromise the survival rate of the implant in a rheumatoid elbow. METHODS: Between 1997 and 2012, there were 54 Coonrad-Morrey total elbow prostheses performed for rheumatoid arthritis in 46 patients. Minimum follow-up was 2 years. There were 35 women and 11 men with a mean age of 60 years (29-83 years)...

Amir R Kachooei, David Ring
Background: To study if patients that have a second radiograph 2 or more years after nonoperative treatment of an isolated radial head fracture have radiocapitellar osteoarthritis (RC OA). Methods: We used the database of 3 academic hospitals in one health system from 1988 to 2013 to find patients with isolated radial head fractures (no associated ligament injury or fracture) that had a second elbow radiograph after more than 2 years from the initial injury. Of 887 patients with isolated radial head fractures, 54 (6%) had an accessible second radiograph for reasons of a second injury (57%), pain (30%), or follow-up visit (13%)...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis(TB) affecting the elbow joint is rarely reported in the developed world. We present the case of an 85-year-old Caucasian female who complained of a chronically discharging and painful wound across her left elbow during her admission for an ischaemic stroke. This was initially deemed to be either a bursitis or local manifestation of amyloid by her general practitioner and dermatologist respectively prior to admission. She was commenced on flucloxacillin by the medical team for presumed cellulitis with minimal response...

Symptomatic posttraumatic arthritis of the elbow in young patients is a disorder for which there is currently no satisfactory solution. In this case report we show the evolution of a comminuted fracture of the capitellum with trochlear extension (McKee typeIV) treated initially with open reduction and internal fixation that eventually required a resurfacing hemiarthroplasty of the capitellum and reconstruction of the lateral ligament complex. After this surgical procedure, the patient had evident improvement of pain and of elbow range of motion, keeping the possibility of performing other rescue techniques open if they were to be necessary in the future...

Ruben Manohara, Colin R Howie
Introduction: Treating peri-prosthetic fractures of the humerus can be very challenging, especially when there is poor bone stock and in the presence of adjacent joint prostheses. We discuss the option of a partial humeral replacement as a salvage procedure for such cases with some technical comments. Methods: This paper presents a technique which utilises a custom- made cemented connector to incorporate the existing well functioning elbow or shoulder replacement with a commercially available partial humeral replacement (PHR) or to an existing prosthetic humeral stem...

Hansen's Disease (HD) is a rare, chronic granulomatous infection of the skin and peripheral nerves caused by the noncultivable organism Mycobacterium leprae. Arthritis is the third most common symptom of HD. Subjects with both confirmed HD on skin biopsy and chronic arthritis were identified at the National Hansen's Disease Program (NHDP). We conducted a series of medical chart reviews and extracted and logged personally deidentified data into a database and carried out descriptive analyses. Eighteen of 261 subjects presented to the NDHP with both HD and chronic arthritis between 2001 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Wheelchair-dependent patients rely on their upper extremities for mobility and transfers. This entails the heavy use of upper extremities as weight-bearing joints, leading to shoulder overuse with increased prevalence of rotator cuff-related disorders, and ultimately to challenging cases for shoulder surgeons when a joint replacement is needed. OBJECTIVE: To report the outcomes of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) in wheelchair-dependent patients with arthritis and rotator cuff tears...

BACKGROUND: Radiocapitellar arthritis or defects most often result from trauma. Most of the patients are young and have high functional demands with high load capacities. Therefore, endoprosthetic options should be postponed for as long as possible. If conservative treatment cannot relieve symptoms sufficiently, radial head preservation, resection or replacement options are at the surgeon's disposal. In early stages of radiocapitellar arthritis, radial head preservation options can be taken into account...

BACKGROUND: Although recent evidence suggests that any prior shoulder surgery may cause inferior shoulder arthroplasty outcomes, there is no consensus on whether previous rotator cuff repair (RCR) is associated with inferior outcomes after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA). PURPOSE: To retrospectively compare outcomes in patients who underwent RTSA with and without previous RCR. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Patients with prior RCR and those without previous shoulder surgery (control) who underwent RTSA for cuff tear arthropathy or irreparable cuff tear were retrospectively identified from a prospective database...
