Injuries around the elbow

The humerus of the upper arm and the paired radius and ulna of the forearm happen to form the elbow joint, a hinge joint in the upper arm. The bony eminence at the slope of the elbow is the olecranon process of the ulna. The antecubital fossa lies over the anterior aspect of the elbow

Injuries to the elbow are common, generally occur secondary to indirect trauma and are often accompanied by injury to shoulder or wrist joints. It is important to assess injuries promptly and exactly, taking into account age and the mechanism of injury, particularly because of the risk of associated vascular involvement. The elbow extension test is a useful screening tool for bony injury - although not reliable.

  • Pulled elbow
  • Fracture of the olecranon
  • Fracture of neck of the radius
  • Fracture of the head of the radius
  • Supracondylar fracture of the humerus
  • Fracture of the lateral condyle of the humerus
  • Fracture of the medial epicondyle of the humerus
  • Dislocation of the elbow joint
  • Fracture of the capitulum
