Intramedullary Ulnar Fixation for the Treatment of Monteggia Fracture.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2021 Apr-Jun;11(2). Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Monroe Carrell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Nashville, Tennessee.

Background: Although many pediatric Monteggia fractures can be treated nonoperatively, the presence of any residual radiocapitellar subluxation following ulnar reduction mandates a more aggressive approach to restore and maintain ulnar length. In younger children, restoration and maintenance of ulna length may be achieved through intramedullary fixation of the ulnar shaft.

Description: A Steinmann pin or flexible intramedullary nail is introduced percutaneously through the olecranon apophysis and advanced within the medullary canal to the ulnar fracture site. 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
