Pain at the elbow joint is often harmless. In most cases, they can be distributed relatively quickly with protection, rest and cooling or other conventional treatment measures.
If these do not bring enough success, elbow surgery can help. This may be the case for acute injuries as well as for chronic diseases and overload syndromes.
Due to the complex anatomy of the elbow joint, elbow surgery for implantation of an elbow prosthesis is a difficult and demanding operation. It usually lasts between one and two hours and can be performed in both full and partial anesthesia.
Good to know that most elbow surgery today can be performed minimally invasive by arthroscopy. Only rarely, eg For example, as a last resort in advanced elbow joint osteoarthritis, open surgery is also indicated for implantation of a joint prosthesis.
Rarely, a prosthetic for the elbow joint is really necessary, because usually conservative therapies and minimally invasive procedures help to avoid the complete wear.
Whether a partial endoprosthesis (eg replacement of the upper arm-elbow joint) or a total endoprosthesis (unblocked, semi-coupled or rigidly coupled and guided by an axle) should be used must be decided in this specific case. In principle, the medium and long-term results of elbow joint prostheses are good.
