Hinged external fixation of the elbow provides the advantages of static fixation with the benefits of continued motion through the joint. Indications for the use of this method of fixation include traumatic instability, distraction interposition arthroplasty, instability after contracture release, and instability after excision of heterotopic ossification. Orthopedic surgeons should be familiar with hinged fixators and their application when faced with an unstable ulnohumeral joint.
