Abstract
Although arthroscopic surgery has been used conventionally, it has not been widely adopted yet due to the risks of complications, including nerve damage, technical difficulties, and limited indications. As shown in other joints, however, the use of an arthroscope will gradually increased in the elbow joint (‘Arthroscopy always wins’). Herein, arthroscopic treatments and arthroscopic ulnar nerve decompression will be discussed in cases of elbow osteoarthritis.
Key Words: Elbow; Osteoarthritis; Arthroscopy; Ulnar nerve; Decompression
