Wright LATITUDE EV™ Total Elbow Arthroplasty

Content Contributor

The premise of the Wright LATITUDE EV™ Total Elbow Arthroplasty is to replicate the natural anatomy of the elbow. For example, the component that is inserted into the ulna has a bow to it that replicates the normal shape of the native bone. This helps to reduce the stress on the surrounding bone. The other component of this systems have specific, mechanically technical features that serve the purpose of creating a construct that preserves the normal mechanicals of a native elbow as much as possible. Lastly, certain parts of the components of this system have a titanium plasma-sprayed coating that improves the strength and stability of the connection to the underlying bone.
