  • Paediatric olecranon fractures: a systematic review. [Review]
    EFORT Open Rev. 2020 May; 5(5):280-288.Holme TJ, Karbowiak M, … Gelfer Y
  • The optimal management and long-term outcomes of olecranon fractures in the paediatric population is not well understood. This systematic review aims to analyse the literature on the management of paediatric olecranon fractures and the long-term implications.A systematic review of several databases was conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. English-language studies evaluating the management of…
  • StatPearls: Prepatellar Bursitis [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Rishor-Olney Colton R. CR Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center Pozun Alexander A Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center BOOK
  • Bursitis is the swelling or inflammation of a synovium-lined sac-like structure called a bursa.  These are found throughout the body near bony prominences and between bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.[1] They function to reduce friction between these structures. Inflammation of the bursa around large joints like the shoulder, knee, hip, and elbow may prompt patient visits to healthcare prov…
  • Rare Presentation of a Rare Tumor: Histiocytic Sarcoma. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 Apr 21; 12(4):e7770.Reddivari AKR, Mehta P, Janapala US
  • An 84-year-old male, with a large gouty tophus over the left elbow for 20 years, developed a new left elbow area mass about three months ago and presented to the emergency department (ED) with complaints of bleeding from that left elbow area mass after a small blunt injury. Initially diagnosed as olecranon bursitis, it had the worsening size and atypical growth associated with persistent leukocyt…
  • Distal Triceps Tendon Injuries. [Review]
    Clin Sports Med. 2020 Jul; 39(3):673-685.Walker CM, Noonan TJ
  • Distal triceps ruptures are uncommon, usually caused by a fall on an outstretched hand or a direct blow. Factors linked to injury include eccentric loading of a contracting triceps, anabolic steroid use, weightlifting, and traumatic laceration. Risk factors include local steroid injection, hyperparathyroidism, and olecranon bursitis. Initial diagnosis can be complicated by pain and swelling, and …
  • Elbow Fractures. [Review]
    Clin Sports Med. 2020 Jul; 39(3):623-636.Midtgaard KS, Ruzbarsky JJ, … Viola RW
  • The elbow joint consists of the humeroulnar, humeroradial, and proximal radioulnar joints. Elbow stability is maintained by a combination of static and dynamic constraints. Elbow fractures are challenging to treat because the articular surfaces must be restored perfectly and associated soft tissue injuries must be recognized and appropriately managed. Most elbow fractures are best treated operati…
  • Olecranon Stress Fracture. [Review]
    Clin Sports Med. 2020 Jul; 39(3):575-588.Greif DN, Emerson CP, … Kaplan LD
  • Olecranon stress fractures are a rare upper extremity fracture that primarily affects throwing athletes. The incidence of olecranon stress fractures are increasing owing to the number of patients playing and the volume of engagement in competitive sports, especially in the pediatric population. However, olecranon stress fractures can present a challenge from a management and a rehabilitation pers…
  • Patient Outcomes After Transolecranon Fracture-Dislocation. [Journal Article]
    J Am Acad Orthop Surg. 2020 May 18 [Online ahead of print]Haller JM, Hulet DA, … Beingessner D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with transolecranon fracture-dislocation had excellent return to function based on the QuickDASH outcome assessment. Patients with transolecranon fracture with associated radial head fracture, coronoid fracture, humeral condyle fracture, and/or ligamentous injury tend to have worse functional outcome than patients with simple transolecranon fracture.
  • Evaluation and Management of Hand, Wrist and Elbow Injuries in Ice Hockey. [Review]
    Open Access J Sports Med. 2020; 11:93-103.Tedesco LJ, Swindell HW, … Popkin CA
  • Ice hockey continues to be a popular, fast-paced, contact sport enjoyed internationally. Due to the physicality of the game, players are at a higher risk of injury. In the 2010 Winter Olympics, men's ice hockey had the highest injury rate compared to any other sport. In this review, we present a comprehensive analysis of evaluation and management strategies of common hand, wrist, and elbow injuri…
  • Detection of muscle activity with forearm pronation exercise using T2-map MRI. [Journal Article]
    J Phys Ther Sci. 2020 May; 32(5):337-341.Takamori M, Akiyama S, … Mizushima T
  • [Purpose] We aimed to detect muscle activity during a forearm pronation exercise using a 0.2 T MRI system. [Participants and Methods] We recruited healthy adult volunteers (7 males, 4 females). Transverse relaxation time (T2) values for 10 forearm muscles were obtained from transverse multiple-spin-echo MR images of one-third of the ulna, lengthwise from the olecranon, in the resting state and af…
  • Pediatric Olecranon Osteochondral Flap Fractures With Subtle Radiographic Abnormality. [Case Reports]
    J Hand Surg Am. 2020 May 15 [Online ahead of print]Kim DC, Cutchen W, … Nimityongskul P
  • Pediatric olecranon osteochondral flap fractures are shear injuries of the humeroulnar joint with elevation of an articular cartilaginous flap from the subchondral bone of the olecranon articular surface. All previously reported cases included an osteochondral flap containing the coronoid, with varying imaging and fixation methods used. We treated 2 pediatric patients with this injury. One of our…
  • Neurologic complications after surgical management of complex elbow trauma requiring radial head replacement. [Journal Article]
    J Shoulder Elbow Surg. 2020 Jun; 29(6):1282-1288.Carbonell-Escobar R, Vaquero-Picado A, … Antuña S
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the incidence of neurologic complications associated with the surgical treatment of complex elbow fractures requiring implantation of a radial head prosthesis may be underestimated in the literature. Inappropriate retraction in the anterior aspect of the radial neck, a prolonged ischemia time, and concomitant coronoid or olecranon fracture fixation represent the main risk factors for the development of this complication. Although the great majority of patients have full recovery of their nerve function, they should be advised on the risk of this stressful complication.
  • [Complex elbow fracture]. [Case Reports]
    Acta Ortop Mex. 2019 Sep-Oct; 33(5):329-332.Fortis-Olmedo IO, Avalos-Arroyo G, Romo-Rodríguez R
  • Elbow fractures are secondary to low or high energy trauma affecting the distal humerus, olecranon, radial head or a combination of the above. Complex fractures of the elbow complicate the reduction and its subsequent fixation representing a real challenge for the orthopedic surgeon. It is essential the use of diagnostic aids such as computerized axial tomography for diagnosis and subsequent trea…
