Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Authoring team

Osteoarthritis may affect the elbow particularly in patients with previous fracture involving the elbow or osteitis dissecans.

Flexion and extension are usually affected whilst rotation is usually full.

Treatment is limited, though pain in the lateral compartment may be treated by excision of the radial head.
