Chapter 03 Video 1: Arthroscopic Radial Head Excision

July 02, 2016

Contributors: Felix H Savoie, III MD

Arthroscopic radial head excision is indicated for pain and functional impairment  in patients with primary or post traumatic radio-capitellar arthritis without instability.  The arthroscopic excision allows preservation of the annular and lateral elbow ligaments.  The radial/posterior interosseous nerve is protected by an arthroscopic retractor and by removing the anterior aspect from the anterior lateral portal with a hooded burr.  The remaining radial head is excised via a soft spot or straight lateral portal with a co-planing technique.  Results are generally good and complications low.
