This volume focuses on acute trauma to the adult elbow including fractures, dislocations, tendon ruptures, and vascular and nerve injuries. Each chapter addresses anatomical key features, surgical and conservative therapeutic procedures, postoperative regimes and complication strategies. International elbow experts give the readers information about surgical approaches, the usage of modern implants, advances in surgical techniques, and pearls and pitfalls for each trauma entity. Moreover, total elbow arthroplasty and radial head replacement are described in detail, current clinical outcomes are confronted, and the authors recommend  their preferred therapeutic approach and salvage measures if required.
