"elbow dislocation" in very young (<3 years old) most likely represents a distal humerus physeal separation and raises concern for nonaccidental trauma; Treatment: Nonoperative . In Monteggia fracture-dislocations, the ulnar fracture is associated with a dislocation of the radial head. A posterior elbow splint is affixed to the arm to stabilize a dislocated elbow. But what is it, and what does it really do? Radiocapitellar joint: It is the joint between the radius and humerus that allows turning of the forearm with the palm up or down. The radial head may be palpable in an anterolateral or posterolateral location, and the forearm may appear shortened and angulated.

The proposed mechanism is force directed onto an outstretched, pronated arm. [2, 40], Once the dislocation is recognized, the direction of the radial head displacement (ie, anterior, posterior, or lateral) must next be noted. Weisman DS, Rang M, Cole WG.

Clin Orthop Relat Res. [Medline]. Reduction of Chronic Radial Head Dislocation Chronic dislocation of the radial head is rare and often goes undiagnosed. Signs and symptoms include pain, visible deformity, an audible pop, swelling, and an inability to move the elbow. [38]  In a Monteggia fracture, the apex of the ulnar fracture points in the direction of the radial head dislocation (see the image below). They will not move the arm as this results in pain. [Medline]. The elbow is wrapped in a splint, made up of fiberglass or plaster, for one to two weeks depending upon the stability of the elbow joint. [37]  Deviation of this line suggests capitellar or radial dislocation. In certain cases, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be asked for further evaluation. Chronic radial head dislocation caused by a rare solitary osteochondroma of the proximal radius in a child: a case report and review of the literature. When this happens, the radial bone can't move back into its normal place. [6, 7] Radial head dislocations have also been rarely seen with associated humeral condyle fracture.

Occasionally, however, a dislocated radial head could not be reduced manually even when the length and/or angulation of the fractured ulna had been corrected. If an associated fracture is present, the forearm is not considered stable; in such a case, bedside reduction of a radial head dislocation typically is not appropriate. If mild instability persists, reassess the alignment of the ulna, for subtle ulnar deformity may preclude stable reduction of a radiocapitellar dislocation initially presumed to be isolated. However, the reduction was easily lost and the elbow re-dislocated with even slight supination or extension of the arm. (See Reduction of Radial Head Subluxation.). 1976 Jun. A clinician should evaluate the radiocapitellar, ulnohumeral, and radioulnar joints, as well as the entire radius and ulna, for evidence of dislocations or fractures.

Inflammation, redness, warmth, swelling, tenderness, and decreased range of motion are other symptoms associated with elbow pain. For a radial head dislocation, doctors usually advise surgery in case of adults and closed reduction in the case of children. This procedure is known as reduction of a radial head subluxation and is done as follows: The doctor will hold the child’s wrist or forearm and rotate the hand outward till the palm faces up. If a radial head dislocation is associated with deep injuries and fracture of bones, the reduction will be performed in the operating room with general anesthesia, which makes the patient sleep throughout the procedure.
