Abstract

Imaging has a paramount role in postsurgical assessment. Radiologists need to be familiar with the different surgical procedures to be able to identify expected postsurgical appearances and also detect potential complications. This article reviews the indications, normal expected postsurgical appearances, and complications of the most frequently used surgical procedures in the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. The emphasis is on points that should not be overlooked in the surgical planning.
