The complete or partial endoprosthetic replacement of an injured or worn human elbow joint is referred to as an elbow prosthesis or an artificial elbow joint. Such an elbow prosthesis is typically used when the cartilaginous layer of the elbow joint is worn so severely that conservative and joint-preserving treatment procedures can not adequately restore mobility and functionality of the elbow joint nor relieve pain.
The elbow endoprosthesis offers excellent mobility, pain reduction and durability. However, it should not be loaded over 4-5 kg to avoid loosening or breaking out. This low load capacity is the main reason why the prosthesis should be installed only at a higher age and less demanding.
