Elbow Arthroplasty

Overview

Total Elbow is indicated for primary and revision intervention, post traumatic and rheumatoid arthritis, and trauma reconstruction. For complete patient matching flexibility, the Total Elbow is unsurpassed in interchangeability and design and is the total elbow of choice for its ease of use. It is backed by nearly a decade of clinical success. The ease-of-operation, enhanced fixation, and simple, precise instrumentation provides excellent results.

The rationale behind the Total Elbow was to create a device that replicates anatomy while providing a superior mechanism that is easier to assemble and revise should a revision become necessary. It was also a priority to create an instrument set that was ideal for a broad range of surgeons.

The device is intended for use with both the humeral and ulnar components inserted with bone cement.
