The aim was to study the results of total elbow arthroplasty in the treatment of gunshot wounds and open injuries. The analysis of treatment and long-term results of 69 patients with gunshot wounds and open injuries of the elbow joint, which performed total endoprosthetics, was carried out. The duration of the preoperative period was 3-16 months after receiving injury or trauma, postoperative follow-up - no less than 12 months after arthroplasty of the joint. The volume of motion in the joint (ROM), functional indices (DASH) and quality of life (SF-36) at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after the operation were studied. It has been established that both in severe trauma and in gunshot wounds, endoprosthetics of the elbow joint equally reliably reduces the pain syndrome, gives a high level of physical functioning, which improves the quality of life of patients.
