Randomized controlled trial: anatomic radial head arthroplasty vs bipolar arthroplasty in non-synthesizable radial head fracture

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main indication for radial head replacement is a comminuted fracture in which an adequate osteosynthesis cannot be obtained. Currently, anatomical modular prosthesis and bipolar prosthesis are the most used implants. Results of bipolar implants was reported by several authors, however little is known on the results of anatomical arthroplasrt and are not available randomized controlled trials that compare these implants. The aim of this study is to analyze differences in results between anatomical modular prosthesis and bipolar prosthesis with a randomized controlled trial.
