  2. afragmentation of the sample due to inability to properly visualise the tumour and the use of motorised arthroscopic tools for ablation, bit is reported that all 10 patients in the study had presented with classic symptoms of limited ROM and nocturnal pain that subsides on use of NSAID, cunsuccessful previous open elbow surgery, ¤ previous elbow trauma prompted an open surgery with residually limited ROM resulting in ever-increasing elbow contracture
