Two-stage strategy for neglected Monteggia fracture in children: A retrospective study of 51 patients.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Mar;100(10):e25129

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

Abstract: A neglected Monteggia fracture is defined as the fracture of the proximal ulna associated with radial head dislocation (RHD) without undergoing any treatment for 4 weeks or more after injury. One-stage operation of ulnar corrective osteotomy and open reduction of RHD might result in many complications. Therefore, a two-stage strategy, including ulnar osteotomy (UO) with or without annular ligament reconstruction (ALR), was adopted at our institute since 2010. 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

Monteggia Fracture-Dislocations in Children: History and Current Concepts and Management Schemes.

Instr Course Lect 2019 ;68:407-414

Since pediatric Monteggia fracture-dislocations were first described in 1814, they have been a complicated injury for orthopaedic surgeons to manage. These injuries typically consist of a fracture of the ulna with dislocation of the radial head. Unlike most pediatric injuries, Monteggia fracture-dislocations remodel very poorly, and the relationship between the radial head and the capitellum does not improve with time. 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
