Relatively young patients, in their 20s to 40s, suffering from distal humerus fractures, lack an effective elbow replacement option that reduces aseptic loosening, and reliably provides them with a loading restriction of 15 lbs or more. We aim to address this problem with a modular implant that only replaces the trochlea and capitellum of the distal humerus, using the patient's natural ligaments for stability and connection to the ulna and radius, the rest of the arm.
