Elbow dislocation with coronoid and ipsilateral distal radius fracture


Author(s): Clevio Desouza, Chiranjivi Jani and Amit Kale

Abstract: Introduction: The elbow joint is one of the most stable articulation of the human skeletal system, which makes dislocations of the elbow already an uncommon entity. Add to that, a dislocation associated with coronoid fracture along with a distal end radius fracture, it makes up for an extremely rare entity to occur in a patient. Case Report: We report a case of a 27-year-old male who had a posterior elbow dislocation with ipsilateral coronoid fracture and distal end radius fracture. The elbow was relocated in extension and the distal end radius was attempted to be reduced in flexion. The patient underwent coronoid process fixation with the help of an anchor suture and the distal end radius was fixed with K wires. At 6 months follow up, the patient had minimal pain in his elbow and wrist and could do his daily routine work.
