Elbow Dislocation

An elbow dislocation occurs when the bones that form the elbow joint are forced out of their normal positions. It is a severe injury that typically requires immediate medical attention. In some cases, if there are associated fractures or severe ligament damage, surgery may be required to repair the structures and stabilize the joint.

Elbow ligament injuries

Injury to the ligaments in the elbow is widespread and can be caused by things like falls, sports-related accidents or repeated stress on the joint. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are the two main ligaments that can get hurt at the elbow. Some signs of a torn ligament in the elbow are: Pain, Instability: The elbow may feel loose or unsteady and you may have the feeling that the joint is giving way. When ligaments are hurt, it can be hard to fully bend or straighten the elbow. If a ligament is badly hurt and non-surgical ways don't help, surgery might be needed to fix or rebuild the ligament.

Elbow replacement

Total elbow arthroplasty, which is another name for elbow replacement is a surgery that replaces a broken or sick elbow joint with an artificial joint called a prosthesis. Most of the time, it is done to relieve pain and regain function when other treatments haven't worked. The broken parts of the upper arm bone (humerus) and the forearm bone (ulna) at the elbow joint are removed and replaced with metal or plastic parts that move like the natural joint. Cement or press-fitting is used to hold the fake parts in place.

A) Radial head replacement

The radial head is the rounded end of the radius bone in the forearm that connects to the humerus at the elbow joint. This lets the wrist rotate and keeps the elbow joint stable. This procedure is often done when the radial head is severely broken and other treatments can't fix it well enough, or when the radial head is heavily damaged by arthritis or another condition.
