I operated on a young man after a severe dislocation of the elbow joint in which he had torn both collateral ligaments and the joint capsule on the front side.
I operated on an elderly patient with a broken humerus in the elbow joint. I opted for a “half” elbow replacement.
Continuing education is the be-all and end-all. Therefore, I am gathering further knowledge and experience these days at the annual congress of the Austrian Society for Trauma Surgery in Salzburg.
During the night, I operated on an acute patient with large pus deposit in the upper arm near the elbow joint. The patient’s hand was paralyzed in the meantime.
Yesterday I operated on a very rare case – a congenital fused forearm bone directly below the elbow in an 18-year-old athlete (picture before the operation).
Comminuted fractures of the elbow are very difficult to treat. The X-rays show the bone reconstruction procedure from start to finish.
I operated on a young patient, an athlete with a rare comminuted fracture in the elbow joint (Fig. before). These injuries are very difficult to treat, as the fragments of the joint surface are often small and it is often not even technically possible to reassemble them.
A young athlete (pitcher in baseball) injured the medial collateral ligament of the elbow joint while pitching 3 years ago. He was treated in a specialized hospital by replacing the ligament with an artificial fiber.
I have now published my many years of experience with unhealed fractures of the lower end of the humerus and their solutions with the aid of artificial joints in the journal of the Austrian Society for Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery.
