PMID:  912975     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Total elbow replacement utilizing the G.S.B. hinge prosthesis will improve function in patients with ankylosed or painful, unstable elbows in the early postoperative period. However, painful loosening has been the primary long-term problem and has led to the abandonment of this concept even for salvage of the destroyed rheumatoid elbow joint.
