Elbow

Most arthritis of the elbow is secondary to ununited anconeal process or cartilege tears on the anterior surface of the joint. Some cases are old injuries that have not been surgical repaired.

The gold is placed on the medial and lateral side of the joint. Like the stifle, we see more reduction of pain and inflammation of the joint with little tightening of the joint capsule. The ununited anconeal process will usually be reabsorbed within 3 months post gold bead implant.
