It may be entirely asymptomatic or present with symptoms and signs such as swelling, erythema, pain, palpable mass, vascular and nerve compression or joint movement restriction. We present a case of heterotopic ossification presenting as median nerve neuropathy after distal biceps tendon repair using a limited volar single incision.

  • Biomechanical Comparison of Elbow Stability Constructs

    Despite surgical stabilization of complex elbow trauma, additional fixation to maintain joint congruity and stability may be required. Multiple biomechanical constructs include static external fixator (SEF), hinged external fixator (HEF), Internal Joint Stabilizer (IJS), or a hinged elbow orthosis (HEO). Optimal adjunct fixation to surgical reduction is yet to be determined.
