Olecranon fractures: applied anatomy, clinical assessment and evidence-based management.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2022 Feb 23;83(2):1-7. Epub 2022 Feb 23.

Department of Orthopaedics, Macclesfield District General Hospital, East Cheshire NHS Trust, Macclesfield, UK.

Olecranon fractures are common injuries, making up 10% of all fractures of the upper limb. They usually result from a fall from standing height in older people, or from a direct blow in young people. The olecranon's superficial location, with poor soft tissue and muscle protection, make it liable to fracture following direct impact. Read More

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Nov 6;10(11):e2397-e2406. Epub 2021 Oct 6.

Research Department, La Tour Hospital, 1217 Meyrin, Switzerland.

Surgical treatment of anterior glenohumeral joint instability can be challenging and carries the inherent risk of recurrent instability, dislocation arthropathy, and postoperative loss of external rotation. In the current manuscript, a technique for combined reconstruction of anterior labrum and capsule, with concomitant reduction of the humeral head during anterior capsule reconstruction in open Latarjet procedure, is presented. Analogous to other techniques, the coracoid graft is fixed on the anteroinferior part of the glenoid between 3 and 5 o'clock. Read More

Hybrid coracoclavicular and acromioclavicular reconstruction in chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocations yields good functional and radiographic results.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2022 Jun 29;30(6):2084-2091. Epub 2021 Nov 29.

Department of Bone and Joint Surgery, Spedali Civili, Brescia, Italy.

Purpose: Optimal treatment of chronic unstable acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations (stage 3-5 according the Rockwood classification) is still debated. Anatomic coracoclavicular (CC) reconstruction is a reliable option in terms of two-dimensional radiographic reduction, clinical outcomes, and return to sports, but there remain concerns regarding anterior-posterior stability of the AC joint with CC ligament reconstruction alone. The aim of the present study was to describe the mid-term results of a new hybrid technique with CC and AC ligament reconstruction for chronic AC joint dislocations. Read More

Isolated Medial Dislocation of Elbow: A Case Report.

JNMA J Nepal Med Assoc 2021 Aug 12;59(240):812-813. Epub 2021 Aug 12.

Department of Medical and Surgical Nursing, Nepalese Army Institute of Health Sciences, Sanobharyang, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Even though posterior or postero-lateral dislocations of elbow are more common, both isolated medial and lateral dislocations of elbow are extremely uncommon. Since there are subtle findings and minimum pain after medial dislocation of elbow, these are sometimes missed by attending physician at first presentation and changes into chronic type with guarded prognosis. We report a case of a 15-year old boy with isolated medial dislocation of elbow which was correctly identified and treated with closed reduction and posterior slab application. Read More

Post-traumatic entrapment of the median nerve in the ulno-humeral joint: Diagnosis, treatment and literature review.

J Orthop Sci 2022 May 15;27(3):627-634. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Hand Surgery and Microsurgery, Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Modena, Largo Del Pozzo, 71, 41125 Modena, Italy.

Background: The incidence of median nerve injuries in pediatric elbow dislocations is approximately 3% and avulsion of the open medial epicondylar epiphysis in the pediatric population is one predisposing factor that may explain this age predilection. These lesions can be difficult to diagnose in the acute phase because symptoms tend to be mild or delayed, consequently their management can be challenging and functional outcome poorer.

Methods: We present the case of an unrecognized median nerve entrapment in a 16-year-old boy with posterior dislocation of the elbow and a medial epicondyle fracture, treated initially with close reduction and open stabilization with a cannulated screw. Read More

Osborne-Cotterill Lesion a Forgotten Injury: Review Article and Case Report.

Clin Shoulder Elb 2020 Mar 21;23(1):27-30. Epub 2020 Feb 21.

Department of Shoulder and Elbow, Fundación Santa Fé de Bogotá, Bogotá, Colombia.

Osborne-Cotterill lesion is an osteochondral fracture located in the posterolateral margin of the humeral capitellum, which may be associated with a defect of the radial head after an elbow dislocation. This lesion causes instability by affecting the lateral ulnar collateral ligament over its capitellar insertion, which is associated with a residual capsular laxity, thereby leading to poor coverage of the radial head, and hence resulting in frequent dislocations. We present a 54-year-old patient, a physician who underwent trauma of the left elbow after falling from a bike and suffered a posterior dislocation fracture of the elbow. Read More
