We strive to understand and present accurate risk assessment of transient and major nerve injuries to maintain our patients' faith as we choose to proceed with elbow arthroscopy. Our arthroscopic training, experience, and volume as well as patient obesity, osteoarthritis, and joint contracture should guide our decisions of which complex cases to expose our patients.

Subscapularis injury in adolescents, usually associated to an avulsion fracture of the lesser humeral tuberosity, accounts for less than 2% of all fractures of the proximal humerus. Isolated tears of the subscapularis tendon without a history of dislocation and associated avulsion fractures are an even rarer occurrence, and treatment is controversial. This article describes a rare case of a 12-year-old suffering from an isolated subscapularis tear and discusses its management. The patient was evaluated at presentation, and at 1 to 2...

Posterior impingement pain in baseball players is typically due to a fractured olecranon osteophyte. Computed tomographic (CT) scanning is the imaging of choice when evaluating posterior or posteromedial elbow pain in athletes who have subjected the elbow to excessive stresses such as occur in overhead throwing and weightlifting. Sometimes the fracture fragment can be so small that it might not be detected on plain radiographs, magnetic resonance imaging, or even at the time of arthroscopy. Symptomatic fractured olecranon osteophytes can be diagnosed clinically with the extension impingement test or arm bar test...

Indications for elbow arthroscopy are expanding; however, it is uncommon compared with shoulder arthroscopy. Elbow arthroscopy can be complicated by positioning, including the need to obtain specific arm holders required by most operating rooms. Surgery can be performed in the supine, prone, or lateral position. Arm traction allows for distraction of the joint space, full insufflation, and therefore visualization of intra-articular anatomy. This article outlines a new technique using previously available shoulder arthroscopy equipment to avoid increased cost incurred by procuring new, elbow-specific equipment...

Elbow arthroscopy is a challenging procedure due, in part, to the technical demands of portal placement as a consequence of the close proximity of the neurovascular structures. The radial nerve and its branches are especially at risk during lateral elbow arthroscopic portal placement. Two newly described (proximal) anterolateral elbow arthroscopy portals may be safer than the distal anterolateral portal location with regard to proximity to the radial nerve. These portals provide a new angle of approach, compared with the traditional and more posterior (but still safely proximal) anterolateral portals...

One cannot overstate the importance of a thorough history and physical examination, supplemented with directed imaging, to help pinpoint the exact cause of the athlete's elbow pain. Although plain radiographs should not be overlooked, advanced imaging plays a critical role in diagnosis and management of pathology in the thrower's elbow, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and stress ultrasound. By judiciously combining these elements, the clinician can appropriately manage these injuries in order to successfully return the athlete to their preinjury level of play...

Direct posterior and posterolateral portals are the standard portals used in posterior elbow arthroscopy. A posteromedial portal in the elbow is not recommended because of its proximity to the ulnar nerve. However, iatrogenic injuries to the ulnar nerve have been reported after elbow arthroscopy using the standard posterior portals, especially in posteromedial elbow joint pathologies. We present a surgical technique applicable to posteromedial elbow pathology by using ultrasound-assisted posteromedial portal placement of the elbow joint...
