Annular ligament reconstruction in chronic posttraumatic radial head dislocation in children.
Traumatic radial head dislocation without an associated fracture is an unusual injury in children. Occasionally, the diagnosis is missed or the injury is not treated acutely, leading to chronic radial head dislocation. The recommended treatment has been controversial, ranging from benign neglect to surgical reconstruction. This case report and review of the literature describes treatment indications and options, as well as potential risks and benefits for conservative and surgical approaches.
