Arthrolysis as treatment of post traumatic and post operative stiffness of the knee and elbow joint



Arthrolysis as treatment of post traumatic and post operative stiffness of the knee and elbow joint



Unfallheilkunde 83(12): 599-605



In the treatment of posttraumatic and postoperative limitation of the range of motion of the knee and elbow, arthrolysis is a proven.sbd.but not a common.sbd.procedure. Indication, operative details and postoperative treatment are discussed. Human cases (33) of arthrolysis of the elbow and 15 cases of arthrolysis of the knee are reported. Of 33 cases of arthrolysis of the elbow, 26 could be followed-up. By measuring the relative improvement of the range of motion, 11 patients were considered to have a good, 9 a satisfactory and 6 an unsatisfactory result. Of 15 patients with arthrolysis of the knee, 12 could be follow-up. Four patients had a good, 4 a satisfactory and 4 an unsatisfactory result.
