A Rare Case of Lateral Displacement of Median Nerve in a Dislocated Elbow and its Management.

J Orthop Case Rep 2021 Dec;11(12):80-83

Department of Orthopedics, Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Introduction: Elbow dislocation usually presents with a deformity and swelling, yet it can also present with neurological complication. Nerve injury with dislocation is common in the pediatric age group and is reported infrequently among adults. The most common nerve involved with dislocation is the ulnar nerve followed by the median nerve. Read More

Right radial nerve decompression for refractory radial tunnel syndrome.

Surg Neurol Int 2021 11;12:507. Epub 2021 Oct 11.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, Arizona, United States.

Background: Radial tunnel syndrome arises due to compression of the radial nerve through the radial tunnel.[1,5] The radial nerve divides into superficial and deep branches in the forearm. The deep branch travels posteriorly through the heads of the supinator where compression commonly occurs. Read More

Olecranon Osteotomy-Facilitated Elbow Release (OFER).

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2018 Jun 9;8(2):e14. Epub 2018 May 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, Phoenix, Arizona.

Background: The olecranon osteotomy-facilitated elbow release (OFER) is a safe and effective method for releasing severe posttraumatic elbow contractures. The OFER procedure is easier, faster, and relatively less invasive, and appears to offer superior outcomes, compared with more traditional techniques.

Description: An olecranon osteotomy provides a trapdoor through which the surgeon will have circumferential access to the joint and will be able to address all intrinsic and extrinsic causes of contracture. Read More

Diagnosis and Treatment of Work-Related Proximal Median and Radial Nerve Entrapment.

Phys Med Rehabil Clin N Am 2015 Aug 18;26(3):539-49. Epub 2015 Jun 18.

Neuromuscular Division, Department of Neurology, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, 1959 NE, Pacific Avenue, WA 98195, USA.

Proximal median (PMNE) and radial (RNE) nerve entrapment syndromes are uncommon. This article provides an evidenced-based treatment guideline for PMNE and RNE based on the available literature. Arriving at an accurate diagnosis must involve an electrodiagnostic (EDx) workup. Read More

Denervation of the lateral humeral epicondyle for treatment of chronic lateral epicondylitis.

J Hand Surg Am 2013 Feb;38(2):344-9

California Orthopaedic Specialists, Newport Beach, CA 92660, USA.

Purpose: Chronic lateral epicondylitis remains a treatment challenge. Traditional surgical treatments for lateral epicondylitis involve variations of the classic Nirschl lateral release. Anatomic studies reveal that the posterior branch or branches of the posterior cutaneous nerve of the forearm consistently innervate the lateral humeral epicondyle. Read More

Gartland type I supracondylar humerus fractures in children: is splint immobilization enough?

Pediatr Emerg Care 2012 Nov;28(11):1150-3

Department of Orthopaedics, Shriners Hospital for Children, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Objective: The primary objective of this study was to determine if Gartland type I supracondylar humerus (SCH) fractures undergo significant displacement resulting in a change in management when treated with a long-arm splint. Secondary objectives included measured changes at follow-up in displacement and/or angulation.

Methods: This was a retrospective review of children who presented with elbow injuries to a children's hospital. Read More

Epicondylectomy versus denervation for lateral humeral epicondylitis.

Hand (N Y) 2011 Jun 25;6(2):174-8. Epub 2011 Feb 25.

Background: Traditional management of lateral humeral epicondylitis ("tennis elbow") relies upon antiinflammatory medication, rehabilitation, steroid injection, counterforce splinting, and, finally, surgery to the common extensor origin. The diversity of surgical approaches for lateral humeral epicondylitis (LHE) suggests perhaps that the ideal technique has not been determined. Denervation of the lateral humeral epicondyle is the concept of interrupting the neural pathway that transmits the pain message. Read More

Reverse pedicled lateral arm flap for reconstruction of posterior soft-tissue defects of the elbow.

Ann Plast Surg 1997 Jun;38(6):635-41

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan, ROC.

Posterior soft-tissue defects of the elbow are difficult to reconstruct by conventional techniques such as closure by approximation or skin graft. An ideal technique should be an easy and reliable one-stage procedure that provides predictable surgical results with regard to elbow function and cosmesis. This report details our experience in 7 patients who underwent a one-stage procedure for coverage of the posterior elbow employing the reverse pedicled lateral arm flap. Read More

Surgical release of elbow-capsular contracture in pediatric patients.

A D Mih F G Wolf

J Pediatr Orthop 1994 Jul-Aug;14(4):458-61

Department of Orthopaedics, Indiana University, Indianapolis 46202.

Nine pediatric patients with elbow-capsular contractures were treated by surgical release. Six patients had sustained prior trauma and three patients had medical conditions leading to capsular contracture. A lateral approach was used to release the anterior and posterior capsules, as well as to remove sites of bony impingement. Read More

Peripheral nerve injuries in athletes. Treatment and prevention.

Sports Med 1993 Aug;16(2):130-47

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, New York.

Peripheral nerve lesions are uncommon but serious injuries which may delay or preclude an athlete's safe return to sports. Early, accurate anatomical diagnosis is essential. Nerve lesions may be due to acute injury (e. Read More

A new double-purpose device for elbow extension in tetraplegia with paralysis below C5.

Paraplegia 1993 Feb;31(2):116-8

Loewenstein Rehabilitation Hospital, Raanana, Israel.

A new device for elbow extension, developed as a dynamic orthosis and also as a static splint for a C5 tetraplegic arm, is presented. A patient with tetraplegia, probably related to infection of the central and peripheral nervous system, had a paralysed right triceps muscle, with a very strong corresponding biceps. Extension by force of a posterior stretched rubber ring made the arm useful, while the possibility to lock the elbow hinges of the orthosis at any desired angle enabled static splinting of the elbow to increase the range of motion.
