As total elbow replacements are being performed more frequently, more periprosthetic fractures are occurring. Although this is a frequent topic of discussion for hips and knees, the literature contains little information to guide treatment of such fractures around the elbow. This article outlines the principles of classification and treatment based on the authors' clinical experience with more than 1000 total elbow arthroplasties.
