    " The radiocapitellar jt was addressed. An aggressive synovectomy was performed. I excised as much capsule as possible. There was extensive capsular adhesions anteriorly, which were taken down with combination of sharp and blunt dissection, as well as Key elevator for th a subperiosteal elevation of the capsule off the anterior distal humerus. Heterotopic bone and osteophytes that were present were resected. There was some excess bone formation within the coronoid fossa. Some articulare cartilage loss which was debrided. Ulnar nerve was decompressed.

    Then ulnohumeral joint because of the severe extension contracture that present. Excess bone from the posterior aspect of the olecranon fossa. Debrided some mild osteophyte formation on the trochlea and again completed the excision of the tip of the coronoid just proximal to the capsular insertion. Again, synovectomy and capsular excision was performed through the ulnar aspect. There was some significant heterotopic ossification through the anterior bundle of the ulnar collateral ligament, as well as the flexor pronator mass. Then ulnar collateral ligament was repaired with anchor. "
