Arthroscopically-assisted fixation of anteromedial coronoid facet fracture and lateral ulnar collateral ligament repair for acute posteromedial rotatory fracture dislocation of the elbow.
Shoulder Elbow. 2019 Oct; 11(5):378-383.SE

Abstract

If left untreated, varus posteromedial rotatory injuries of the elbow result in poor functional outcomes. Surgical treatment allows restoration of elbow kinematics, minimizing the chances of chronic varus instability and early onset osteoarthritis. However, large exposures are associated with extensive soft tissue stripping, a high risk of infection, nerve injury, poor visualization of the articular surface and longer recovery. Consequently, there has been renewed interest in the use of elbow arthroscopy to circumvent these problems. Arthroscopic treatment offers the potential advantage of a swift recovery, with instant rehabilitation, less stiffness and swelling than might be expected after open repair. We present the first combined arthroscopic-assisted anteromedial facet coronoid fracture fixation and lateral ulna collateral ligament repair in a varus posteromedial rotatory injury of the elbow.
