Abstract

Background: Aseptic loosening is a serious complication in total elbow arthroplasty. Its etiologies are multifactorial. The mechanical failure is a major etiology of loosening that occurs from the micromotion between bone and cement interfaces. We study inappropriate sizes between elbow prostheses and patients’ elbows. If elbow prosthesis is too small, its stress is higher in latter: and mechanical failure and aseptic loosening then occur.
