Coronoid process reconstruction

Gregory Bain, Job N. Doornberg

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The coracoid process is the primary stabilizer of the elbow joint. Complex fracture dislocations are difficult to manage and are a surgical challenge. Often it is the coronoid process that remains a problem, leading to persistent instability, pain, and restricted motion. This mix of the stiff, painful, and unstable elbow is a difficult challenge.
