Cubitus valgus is a deformity of the Elbow Region in which forearm is angled outward from the body. Along with Congenital Anomalies such as turner syndrome, cubitus valgus can also be caused by Fractures. Several methods followed for its fixation or treatment include Ilizarov method and osteotomy. Focus is also shifted towards cubitus varus.
Correspondingly, osteochondritis dissecans is a disorder of Elbow Joint which is categorized into four stages elaborating how the lesions progress step by step. For its treatment, range of techniques are available including microfracture/retrograde drilling, arthroscopic loose body removal, Bone peg fixation, and costal osteochondral grafts.
Furthermore, Congenital Anomalies like synostosis, Infection or inflammatory arthritis, and Osteoarthritis are the causes of stiffness of elbow. One more elbow deformity is Rheumatoid Arthritis which can be treated non-operatively by giving injections of Corticosteroids. On the other hand, operative treatment involves the Joints replacement therapy. A thorough explanation on Osteoarthritis is also given conclusively.
