Abstract

Radial head arthroplasty is used to stabilize the joint after a complex acute radial head fracture that is not amenable for fixation or to treat sequelae of radial head fractures. Most of the currently used radial head prostheses are metallic monoblock implants that are not consistently adaptable and raise technical challenges since their implantation requires lateral elbow subluxation. Metallic modular radial head arthroplasty implants available in various head and stem sizes have been developed to improve adaptability and facilitate implantation. Bipolar radial head arthroplasty implants were developed to improve articular tracking of the prosthesis on the capitellum.
