Management of Bone Defects Around the Elbow
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00873145|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : April 1, 2009
Last Update Posted : April 15, 2015
Bone defects of the distal humerus require complex reconstructions, for which standard prostheses may be insufficient. The researchers therefore investigated the clinical and radiological outcome of elbow reconstructions by megaprostheses.
