Elbow prosthetic surgery has evolved greatly over the years: the materials used have changed, as have the approaches used to preserve soft tissues. A greater knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics of the elbow, and more generally of the elbow itself, among orthopedic surgeons has led to the treatment of increasingly acute cases and of complex sequelae with elbow prosthesis. This book is dedicated to every aspect of the prosthetics of the elbow and provides a state-of-the-art summary for surgeons who deal with the disorders of this joint. The expertise and widely acknowledged reputation of the authors who have contributed to this text are such that this book may be considered a manual that is indispensable to the professional growth of the elbow surgeon.
