BACKGROUND: The elbow is a challenging region to reconstruct functionally. Several closure methods for elbow wounds have been reported, including flap surgery. Here, we present the results obtained using a propeller flap pedicled by a posterior ulnar recurrence artery perforator (PURAP) or a radial collateral artery perforator (RCAP) for functional reconstruction of soft tissue defects in elbows. METHODS: Twenty-four patients with an average age of 27.0 years (range, 9-52 years) underwent elbow soft tissue reconstructions between 2005 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: The elbow is prone to stiffness after trauma. To regain functional elbow motion several conservative- and surgical treatment options are available. Conservative treatment includes physical therapy, intra-articular injections with corticosteroids and a static progressive or dynamic splinting program. If conservative treatment fails, an operative release of the posttraumatic stiff elbow is often performed. The best Evidence-Based rehabilitation protocol for patients after an operative release is unknown to date and differs per surgeon, hospital and country...

Intraosseous entrapment of the median nerve is an uncommon complication of elbow dislocation and fractures. The condition is seen to occur in adolescent age group with a remote history of trauma. We report two rare cases of type 2 intraosseous median nerve entrapment. Though the diagnosis of median neuropathy is made with clinical tests and neurophysiological studies, however exact site of entrapment and presurgical mapping of nerve is done accurately with MR neurography. Imaging thus plays a pivotal role in management of this condition...

REVIEW
M Hackl, L P Müller, T Leschinger, K Wegmann
Total elbow arthroplasty is currently most commonly carried out due to acute trauma or post-traumatic conditions. Bone defects are often present and must be considered in the (pre-)operative workup. The use of semi-constrained prostheses with a systematic cementing technique through a triceps-on approach leads to satisfying clinical results, however, the outcome is worse when compared with rheumatic patients.Primary total elbow arthroplasty for complex distal humerus fractures in the elderly patient or secondary implantation following failed conservative treatment or osteosynthesis represent possible indications for (post‑)traumatic joint replacement...

BACKGROUND: As one of the most common musculoskeletal complications following trauma, elbow contracture is a frequent source of disabled daily activities. Conventional interventions are inadequate to provide favorable outcome. The static progressive orthoses are getting popular in the treatment of this problem. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this review was to assess the effectiveness of static progressive orthoses for elbow contracture. METHODS: Literatures when written in English published during 1 January 1997 and 31 January 2017 were searched in the following databases: Web of Science, Cochrane Library, PubMed, and EBSCOhost...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Radiocapitellar arthritis or defects most often result from trauma. Most of the patients are young and have high functional demands with high load capacities. Therefore, endoprosthetic options should be postponed for as long as possible. If conservative treatment cannot relieve symptoms sufficiently, radial head preservation, resection or replacement options are at the surgeon's disposal. In early stages of radiocapitellar arthritis, radial head preservation options can be taken into account...

Importance: Prehospital blood product transfusion in trauma care remains controversial due to poor-quality evidence and cost. Sequential expansion of blood transfusion capability after 2012 to deployed military medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) units enabled a concurrent cohort study to focus on the timing as well as the location of the initial transfusion. Objective: To examine the association of prehospital transfusion and time to initial transfusion with injury survival...

Supracondylar humeral fractures are the most common type of pediatric elbow fracture. With proper treatment, these injuries usually heal well and the patients return to full function. However, a small percentage of these injuries may result in devastating complications and, thus, provoke anxiety in many surgeons treating them. This article provides tips for successful management of these injuries without complications and provides references for further study.

BACKGROUND: Intra-articular elbow fractures are considered to be one of the most complex injuries in orthopedic trauma. Some are too comminuted for open reduction and internal fixation. Recently, total elbow replacement (TER) has gained popularity for the treatment of comminuted elbow trauma when other treatment options are not possible. METHODS: Since 2007-2013 we treated 18 patients with TER due to comminuted distal humeral fractures. We used the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand scoring system (DASH) to evaluate the patient's satisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Among other factors, like the time from trauma to surgery or the number of axons that reach the muscle target, a patient's age might also impact the final results of brachial plexus surgery. OBJECTIVE: To identify (1) any correlations between age and the 2 outcomes: elbow flexion strength and shoulder abduction range; (2) whether childhood vs adulthood influences outcomes; and (3) other baseline variables associated with surgical outcomes. METHODS: Twenty pediatric patients (under age 20 yr) who had sustained a traumatic brachial plexus injury were compared against 20 patients, 20 to 29 yr old, and 20 patients, 30 yr old or older...

BACKGROUND: To determine whether olecranon fractures have osteoporotic features such as age-dependent, low bone attenuation and low-energy trauma as a cause of injury. METHODS: Elbow computed tomography (CT) and medical record review were performed in 114 patients (53 males and 61 females) with acute olecranon fractures. The mean age was 57 years. Bone attenuation was measured on the central part of the olecranon on sagittal CT images avoiding the fracture, and on the distal humerus (distal metaphysis and medial and lateral condyles) on coronal CT images...
