The Effect of Prosthetic Radial Head Geometry on the Distribution and Magnitude of Radiocapitellar Joint Contact Pressures : Publication Excerpt : “Commercially available radial head prostheses demonstrated reduced radiocapitellar contact areas and elevated contact pressures during compressive loading. These were significantly greater with symmetrical circular prostheses than with asymmetrical elliptical designs. The prosthesis that best mimicked native contact behavior was the anatomical radial head prototype 2 [ARH Solutions] owing to its design for articulating with the capitellum, the lateral trochlear ridge, and the sulcus between.”
