PrEvention of posttraumatic contractuRes with Ketotifen 2 (PERK 2) - protocol for a multicenter randomized clinical trial.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2020 Feb 24;21(1):123. Epub 2020 Feb 24.

Department of Community Health Sciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, Canada.

Background: Injuries and resulting stiffness around joints, especially the elbow, have huge psychological effects by reducing quality of life through interference with normal daily activities such as feeding, dressing, grooming, and reaching for objects. Over the last several years and through numerous research results, the myofibroblast-mast cell-neuropeptide axis of fibrosis had been implicated in post-traumatic joint contractures. Pre-clinical models and a pilot randomized clinical trial (RCT) demonstrated the feasibility and safety of using Ketotifen Fumarate (KF), a mast cell stabilizer to prevent elbow joint contractures.

Dual reconstruction of lateral collateral ligament is safe and effective in treating posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2019 Oct 7;27(10):3284-3290. Epub 2019 May 7.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Samsung Medical Centre, SungKyunKwan University School of Medicine, 81 Irwon-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06351, South Korea.

Purpose: Although reconstruction of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) has been considered the procedure of choice for posterolateral rotatory instability (PLRI), recent studies have reported that the entire lateral collateral ligament complex (LCLC), rather than its posterior part only, contributes to preventing PLRI. Thus, it was hypothesized that dual reconstruction of the radial collateral ligament (RCL) and LUCL for the treatment of elbow PLRI could provide favourable clinical results regardless of the mechanism of injury.

Methods: This retrospective study reviewed the clinical results of 21 patients who underwent dual reconstruction of the RCL and LUCL between 2011 and 2016. Read More

Treatment of Capitellum Fracture with Chronic Radial Head Dislocation.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2019 Jun;24(2):247-250

1 Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.

We encountered a case of capitellum fracture with radial head dislocation in which it was challenging to diagnose whether the dislocation was coincident with the fracture or this was chronic dislocation that presented before the fracture. Chronic radial head dislocation may be congenital or could occur in patients with untreated post-traumatic dislocation, although diagnosis is particularly challenging if the radial head dislocation is unilateral. Classical capitellum fracture involves anterosuperior bone fragment dislocation. Read More

A very rare presentation of reoperation combined both old Monteggia fracture and secondary distal radioulnar joint dislocation in adult: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Apr;98(16):e15310

Department of Orthopedics, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, China.

Rationale: The old Monteggia fracture is an uncommon lesion pattern in adult, which may lead to the potential complications such as recurrent dislocation of the radial head, heterotopic ossification of the elbow, nerve palsy, malunion of the ulna, and residual forearm deformity. However, the secondary distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) dislocation is rarely reported in the similar lesion. Here we present a unique reoperation of old Monteggia fracture combined with secondary DRUJ disruption after the initial operation failure. Read More

Monteggia fracture with unreducable anterior dislocation of the radial head and a lesion of the external collateral ligament of the elbow.

Pan Afr Med J 2018 18;29:216. Epub 2018 Apr 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University Hospital, Monastir 5000, Tunisia.

Monteggia described a fracture of the proximal third of the ulna with anterior dislocation of the radial head from both the proximal radioulnar and radiocapitellar joints. The key treatment principle in Monteggia fractures is stable anatomic alignment of the ulna. We present an uncommon case of a Monteggia fracture-dislocation with an unreducable anterior dislocation of the radial head and associated with a lesion of the lateral collateral ligament of the elbow.

The role of the posterior bundle of the medial collateral ligament in posteromedial rotatory instability of the elbow.

Bone Joint J 2018 08;100-B(8):1060-1065

Department of Orthopedics, Biomechanics Laboratory, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate two hypotheses. First, that disruption of posterior bundle of the medial collateral ligament (PMCL) has to occur for the elbow to subluxate in cases of posteromedial rotatory instability (PMRI) and second, that ulnohumeral contact pressures increase after disruption of the PMCL.

Materials And Methods: Six human cadaveric elbows were prepared on a custom-designed apparatus which allowed muscle loading and passive elbow motion under gravitational varus. Read More

Leni & Peter W. May Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY.

Essex-Lopresti Lesions are rare injuries that are often missed in the acute setting. Delayed intervention may lead to chronic wrist and elbow pain and overall poor outcomes. The literature currently supports treatments that involve shortening of the ulna to reduce the relative degree of ulnar impaction, followed by attempted reduction of the distal radioulnar joint.

Temporary Bridge Plate Stabilization of Unstable Elbow Fractures and Dislocations.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018 Jun;22(2):46-50

Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA.

Unstable fracture-dislocations of the elbow, and in particular the "terrible triad" injury consisting of an elbow dislocation with a fracture of the radial head and coronoid, are complex injuries that can be plagued and complicated by persistent instability. Acute and chronic instability is a difficult problem and is best managed early by avoidance and restoration of stability. A number of treatment options have been proposed to manage acute postfixation instability of the elbow joint. Read More
