Image-based navigation improves the positioning of the humeral component in total elbow arthroplasty.

Abstract

HYPOTHESIS Implant alignment in total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is a challenging and error-prone process using conventional techniques. Identification of the flexion-extension (FE) axis is further complicated for situations of bone loss. This study evaluated the accuracy of humeral component alignment in TEA. We hypothesized that an image-based navigation… (More)
