BACKGROUND: Terrible triad (TT) is one of the severe injuries of the elbow that generally requires surgery. Nonsurgical treatment has recently been applied in selected cases of TT injury. Evaluation of the results of this treatment was the main aim of this study. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, 10 patients with a mean follow-up of 30.6 months were evaluated. The inclusion criteria included a congruent joint after closed reduction, no indication for surgery of the coronoid and radial head fractures, no block in supination and pronation up to 60°, no intra-articular fragments, and a free and stable joint with ulnohumeral extension up to a minimum of 45°...

BACKGROUND: Clinical outcomes of terrible triad injuries (TTIs) of the elbow are historically poor. To date, it is still debatable whether the coronoid needs to be fixed and if so, how and in which sequence. METHODOLOGY: Between 2010 and 2013, 13 patients were treated surgically for acute TTIs of the elbow at a Tertiary Level 1 Trauma Centre by a single surgeon, using a standardized protocol, which included coronoid-brachialis complex fixation via pull-through trans-osseous sutures, radial head fixation or prosthetic replacement and a repair of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament...

PURPOSE: Radial head arthroplasty (RHA) is a viable treatment for complex radial head fracture. Whereas elbow stability and function is typically restored at short- to mid-term follow-up, the outcome in higher-demand populations is not well defined. We sought to characterize the functional and occupational outcomes following RHA in an active duty military population with intense upper extremity demands. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of all U.S...

PURPOSE: Among patients who undergo surgical treatment of terrible triad elbow injuries (TTEI), we hypothesized that those who received perioperative glucocorticoid (GC) therapy would have improved postoperative pain and range of motion (ROM) and a similar complication rate compared with patients who did not receive GC therapy. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 26 patients who underwent surgical treatment of TTEI from 2009 to 2015. Thirteen patients received a single intraoperative dose of 10 mg intravenous dexamethasone followed with a 6-day oral methylprednisolone taper course (GC group), and 13 did not (control group)...

The aim of our study is to evaluate the clinical and radiologic outcomes in patients with terrible triad injury, who underwent surgical treatment with or without the medial collateral ligament (MCL) repair. Fourteen patients who underwent surgery with a minimum of 12-month follow-up (mean, 17 months) were reviewed. Based on the systematic treatment protocol, radial head fracture, lateral collateral ligament, and coracoid fracture were treated. Subsequently, torn MCL was repaired in 7 patients, whereas in the remaining 7 patients, the MCL was not treated...

Anterior shoulder dislocation in the athlete may result in an assortment of injuries that often benefit from surgical stabilization procedures. These injury patterns can be complex, requiring a multimodal approach to treatment. We present a rare case of a traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation in a teenage athlete that resulted in humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament, rotator cuff tear, and axillary nerve palsy. Surgical treatment enabled return to football within 1 year of injury, and full function was restored...

BACKGROUND: The combination of an elbow dislocation, a radial head fracture, and a coronoid process fracture is known as "terrible triad" injury of the elbow. This injury is one of the most challenging injuries of the musculoskeletal system and almost always causes instability of the elbow. The use of an adjuvant hinged external fixator in such injuries is still debated. CASE PRESENTATION: In this case report we present a case of radial nerve palsy after setting up an adjuvant hinged external fixator in a complex fracture-dislocation of the elbow...

BACKGROUND: The extensile extensor digitorum communis (EDC) splitting approach can access the ulnar coronoid process (UCP), which can be used to treat terrible triad injuries. The present study anatomically examined the extensile EDC splitting approach for exposing the UCP. METHODS: Twenty fresh frozen cadaveric upper limbs were dissected. The splitting length of the EDC and detachment length of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB)-extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL)-brachioradialis (BR) origin were measured to expose the UCP...
