Type 3 synostoses are further divided into three different subgroups: type 3A, which affects the proximal third of the forearm without involving the articular surface and is treated as type 2; type 3B, where only the radioulnar joint involved is treated with the excision of the radial head; type 3C, where the radiohumeral joint is involved and, consequently, the treatment is an arthroplasty [4, 5].
The differential diagnosis in lateral elbow pain includes lateral epicondylitis, radial tunnel syndrome, occult fracture, lateral synovial plica, injury to the lateral collateral ligament, and radiohumeral joint disease (synovitis, osteoarthritis).
The elbow joint is opened anteriorly, and the capsule released circumferentially; the humeroulnar and radiohumeral joints are then disarticulated.
