Combined Ipsilateral Humeral Shaft and Galeazzi Fractures Creating a Floating Elbow Variant.

Case Rep Orthop 2018 8;2018:7430297. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, USA.

"Floating elbow" injuries of the arm traditionally represent a combination of humeral shaft and forearm fractures which require anatomic rigid open reduction and internal fixation of all fractures to allow for early range of motion exercises of the elbow. There are published variants of the floating elbow injury which include ipsilateral diaphyseal humeral fracture, proximal ulna fracture with proximal radioulnar joint disruption, and ipsilateral diaphyseal humeral fracture with elbow dislocation and both bones forearm fracture. We present the case of a 21-year-old woman whose left arm became caught between the side of a waterslide and adjacent rocks at a park. Read More

Chronic Monteggia.

Curr Opin Pediatr 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná, Brasil.

Purpose Of Review: The chronic Monteggia may lead to pain, mobility limitation, progressive valgus deformity, lateral elbow instability, late ulnar nerve paralysis, and degenerative changes. In this review, we discuss the current procedures in the literature focused on correcting chronic Monteggia to avoid these complications.

Recent Findings: Correction of the ulnar deformity with elongation and angulation of the ulna in the opposite direction of the dislocation of the radial head is the most important factor for the reduction and consequent preservation of the radial head. Read More

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2019 Jan 18;28(1):149-157. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Juntendo University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Although past studies using video analysis indicated that the arm tackle and head-in-front shoulder tackle are possible risks for shoulder dislocation, the underlying mechanisms of tackling-related shoulder dislocation have not been sufficiently investigated. This study aimed to analyze the kinematic aspects of these tackling motions in 1-on-1 tackles in an experimental setting using a 3-dimensional motion-capture system.

Methods: A total of 65 one-on-one tackles were recorded using a marker-based, automatic, digitizing motion-capture system. Read More

A Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Based Staging System for Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Elbow: A Validation Study Against the International Cartilage Repair Society Classification.

Orthop J Sports Med 2018 Sep 12;6(9):2325967118794620. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan.

Background: Evaluations of the stability of osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesions of the elbow using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have resulted in reports with variable accuracy. Therefore, the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) classification remains the gold standard to determine OCD lesion stability. Because OCD commonly occurs in pediatric patients, a noninvasive method comparable with the ICRS classification is desired. Read More

Posteromedial elbow dislocation with lateral humeral condylar fracture in children: Three case reports and a literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(36):e12182

Rationale: Posteromedial dislocations of the elbow with lateral humeral condylar fractures (LCFs) are uncommon, and only isolated cases have been reported in the English-language literature. Because of the complex radiolucent cartilaginous structures and late-appearing ossification centers, radiological diagnosis of elbow dislocations with LCF in children is challenging.

Patient Concerns: We report three children with posteromedial elbow dislocation: two patients with Milch type I and one patient with Milch type II LCF. Read More
