Olecranon Fracture Open Reduction Internal Fixation

displaced unstable olecranon fracture

This patient sustained a displaced and unstable olecranon fracture (red arrow) as well as a minimally displaced coronoid fracture (blue arrow) and a marginal, mildly displaced radial head fracture (green arrow).  Despite these fractures, the elbow joint generally remained reduced.

fracture stabilized with plate and screw construct

The olecranon fracture was reduced and stabilized with a plate and screw construct and the other two fractures treated non-operatively.  Protected motion was initiated early and the patient recovered with full painless range of motion.
