Annular ligament reconstruction in chronic Monteggia fracture-dislocations in the adult population: indications and surgical technique.

Musculoskelet Surg 2018 Oct 20;102(Suppl 1):93-102. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit, Cattinara Hospital - ASUITS, Strada di Fiume 447, 34149, Trieste, Italy.

Chronic Monteggia fracture is defined as dislocation of the radial head that is still present 4 weeks after injury. The cause may reside in residual ulnar deformity after internal fixation, in failure of annular ligament healing, or both. This situation may lead to elbow pain, decreased motion, neurologic problems and valgus deformity. 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

While the majority of these fractures are treated non-operatively, the amount of fracture displacement, concomitant injuries, and patient factors often result in the need for surgical stabilization. Although concomitant neurovascular injury in the setting of low-energy trauma is rare, injury to the surrounding neurovascular structures have previously been reported. Read More

Outcomes of coronoid-first repair in terrible triad injuries of the elbow.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2017 Sep 20;137(9):1239-1245. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore, Singapore.

Background: Clinical outcomes of terrible triad injuries (TTIs) of the elbow are historically poor. To date, it is still debatable whether the coronoid needs to be fixed and if so, how and in which sequence.

Methodology: Between 2010 and 2013, 13 patients were treated surgically for acute TTIs of the elbow at a Tertiary Level 1 Trauma Centre by a single surgeon, using a standardized protocol, which included coronoid-brachialis complex fixation via pull-through trans-osseous sutures, radial head fixation or prosthetic replacement and a repair of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament.

Outcome of Early and Late Diagnosed Essex-Lopresti Injury.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2017 06;99(12):1043-1050

1Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, BG Trauma Center Ludwigshafen at the University of Heidelberg, Ludwigshafen on the Rhine, Germany.

Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the outcomes in a large series of Essex-Lopresti injuries (ELIs) and to compare patients with early and late diagnoses.

Methods: Thirty-one patients with an ELI (average age and standard deviation [SD], 46 ± 10 years) who were followed for a minimum of 2 years were included in the study. Patients were grouped according to whether the ELI had been diagnosed early (on the day of the injury) or late (>4 weeks after the radial head injury). Read More

A validation of the Nottingham Clavicle Score: a clavicle, acromioclavicular joint and sternoclavicular joint-specific patient-reported outcome measure.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2017 Oct 7;26(10):1732-1739. Epub 2017 Jun 7.

Nottingham Shoulder & Elbow Unit, Nottingham City Hospital, Nottingham, UK.

Background: Patients with acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) and sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) injuries and with clavicle fractures are typically younger and more active than those with other shoulder pathologies. We developed the Nottingham Clavicle Score (NCS) specifically for this group of patients to improve sensitivity for assessing the outcomes of treatment of these conditions compared with the more commonly used Constant Score (CS) and Oxford Shoulder Score (OSS).

Materials And Methods: This was a cohort study in which the preoperative and 6-month postoperative NCS evaluations of outcome in 90 patients were compared with the CS, OSS, Imatani Score (IS), and the EQ-5D scores. Read More

Radial Head Arthroplasty in the Active Duty Military Service Member With Minimum 2-Year Follow-Up.

J Hand Surg Am 2017 Aug 24;42(8):660.e1-660.e7. Epub 2017 May 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, William Beaumont Army Medical Center, El Paso, TX.

Purpose: Radial head arthroplasty (RHA) is a viable treatment for complex radial head fracture. Whereas elbow stability and function is typically restored at short- to mid-term follow-up, the outcome in higher-demand populations is not well defined. We sought to characterize the functional and occupational outcomes following RHA in an active duty military population with intense upper extremity demands. Read More

Department of Orthopaedics, Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Background: Fracture-dislocation is the extreme variant of injury to the proximal humerus that occurs more commonly in young adults as a result of high-velocity trauma. We evaluated the functional and radiologic outcome of fixation of proximal humeral fracture-dislocations with locked plates.

Methods: This was a retrospective review of 33 proximal humeral fracture-dislocations in 29 patients with a mean age of 35 years (range, 19-60 years) treated by open reduction and internal fixation with locked plates between January 2009 and December 2013. Read More
