  Abstract :

The radial head is essential for the stability of the forearm and resistance to valgus stress. Various treatment options are available, depending on the fracture severity and the demand of the patient. The aim of this study was to evaluate functional results in patients with Mason Type-III radial head fractures treated by radial head resection or prosthesis. In our study we have results showing ROM, MEPS score, DASH score for 12 patients undergoing radial head excision and radial head arthroplasty was compared. In our study we concluded with a finding where radial head replacement was superior to that of resection in aspects of grip, power, and range of motion
