Elbow Replacement in Bangladesh
Since the elbow has many moving parts that must be balanced with great precision to monitor the motions of the forearm, elbow replacement surgery is a difficult operation.
Only one part of the joint can need to be replaced in certain cases.
The ends of the bones that come together in the elbow will be separated if the whole joint has to be replaced. Bones are hollow tubes with a soft base.
Prosthetic devices are divided into two categories:
Linked: The two are related. Since all of the sections of the replacement joint are related, this form of prosthesis functions like a loose hinge. This provides good joint flexibility, but movement stresses may also cause the prosthesis to function on its own.
Unlinked: There is no connection between them. This unit is made up of two parts that are not attached to each other. The surrounding ligaments help keep the joint together in this design.
