Abstract: We evaluated the results of the arthroscopic Outer -
bridge-Kashiwaghi procedure in a retrospective
review of 20 elbows in 19 patients with a mean followup
of 2 years (range : 6 months - 4 years). Range of
motion improved from 94° (range : 15°-140°) to 123°
(range : 110°-140°). Visual analogue scales for pain
improved from 5.8 (range : 2 -8) to 1.8 (range : 0-8).
The Mayo Performance Index increased from 54
(range : 15-85) to 88 (range : 45-100). The results
were good to excellent in 16 elbows, fair in two and
poor in two. Seventeen patients were better (85%),
3patients remained unchanged (15%). In elbows with
severe arthritis, pain relief was minimal. The arthroscopic
Outerbridge-Kashiwaghi procedure appeared
in this study as a good surgical option in mild to moderate
elbow arthritis, with significant pain relief and
increased elbow mobility and function.
