A primary implant replaces both articulating sides of a joint. The two main divisions of elbow implants are semi-constrained and unconstrained implants. Semi-constrained implants have a humeral and ulnar component linked together in a hinged joint. Unconstrained implants are similar to resurfacing implants for other areas of the body and preserve more bone stock.
Although unconstrained implants produce a more natural motion than hinged implants, the potential for instability remains a concern. This has limited their acceptance in the market.
