Open Lateral Epicondylar Release

Arthroplasty is the replacement or reconstruction of a joint that has been damaged or has degenerated over time, as with arthritis. Glenohumeral osteoarthritis is the wearing out of cartilage in the shoulder joint. People who have severe osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint with accompanying long-term damage of the rotator cuff are candidates for Open Lateral Epicondylar Release. Patients with osteoarthritis of the shoulder and an intact rotator cuff are ideal candidates for a Open Lateral Epicondylar Release.
