Elbow Dislocation

more about Elbow Dislocation

  • Elbow dislocation is one of the most common bone injuries in adults as well as children. It is usually caused by a fall on an outstretched hand. Fractures or ligament injuries may be present.

  • The typical symptoms are:
    1. Sudden onset of intense pain
    2. Swelling
    3. Difficulty in bending and straightening elbow joint
  • There may also be difficulty in turning the forearm to make the palm face-up or face-down.

  • The diagnosis is based on the history, symptoms, and physical examination.
  • An X-Ray of the elbow confirms the diagnosis.

  • The dislocated bone should be put back in place by a physician as soon as possible. This procedure is called "reduction".
  • General or local anesthesia is necessary for reduction.
  • After reduction, the patient may need to wear a splint for a few weeks.
  • If the elbow is fractured, surgery may be required.
