  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to document the performance and clinical outcomes of uncemented total elbow replacements involving the press-fit technique performed at the Vanderbilt Hand Center. The press-fit use technique is often used because of complications with cement loosening.

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: March 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Elbow replacement
There are no other arms other then an uncemented total elbow replacement.
Procedure: Total elbow replacement arthroplasty
Total elbow arthroplasty using pressfit technique in which no cement is used.

Detailed Description:

The three parts of this study will be:

Retrospective Chart Review-

A chart review will be completed on all patients that have had an uncemented total elbow arthroplasty using the press-fit technique at Vanderbilt Hand & Upper Extremity Center. The chart review will include:

  • A historical data form
  • An operative data form
  • A radiographic assessment form

Questionnaire Mailing- We will mail prospective study patients a DASH (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand) questionnaire to complete with a mailing letter explaining the request for this information. The DASH will be modified to ask patients regarding their pre-operative time as well.

Clinical Data Collection-

We will enroll patients who have already had/or will be having a uncemented total elbow arthroplasty using the press-fit technique. If the patient already has a file completed through the chart review we will not complete the historical data form, operative form, or previous radiograph assessments. If the patient does not have a file completed through the chart review the data collection will include:

  • An Informed Consent Document
  • A historical data form
  • An operative data form
  • A radiographic assessment form
  • Patient-completed DASH questionnaire
  • Elbow Assessment Form
