Wrist anatomy is complex, and finding the cause of your pain can be tricky. Wrist pain may feel sharp, dull, achy, or like pins and needles. Pain can occur when you bend your wrist forward, flex it backward, put pressure on it, or rotate it to turn a doorknob.
Elbow arthrodesis is a salvage operation designed to relieve pain and enable weight bearing in young patients with painful arthritic joints who have failed all other treatment modalities. Unfortunately, elbow arthrodesis is poorly tolerated by many patients because there is no fusion position that accommodates all activities of daily living. As indications for elbow arthroplasty expand and implant design improves, patients living with elbow arthrodesis may seek conversion to arthroplasty to regain a functional range of motion.
Popping and cracking in your wrist (also known as crepitus) can be an uncomfortable sensation that arises during many of your daily activities. Unfortunately, the origins of this joint noise are not always clear-cut.
Total Elbow Arthroplasty Gives Good Functional Outcome in Distal Humerus Fracture with Pre-existing Chronic Elbow Dislocation
Distal humerus fracture with concomitant chronic elbow dislocation is difficult to manage by open reduction and internal fixation, while total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is an effective treatment for acute fracture or failed internal fixation of distal humerus fracture in elderly patients with osteoporosis
