(See the image below.). The coronoid process of the ulna is of critical importance to elbow stability [2, 3, 5–8, 11].Fractures of the coronoid, although occasionally isolated injuries, most commonly occur in association with other fractures or ligamentous injuries and may result in elbow instability. 2011 Jun.

This includes closed reduction of the dislocation and splinting in a moderate degree of flexion for a short period (< 3 weeks) before initiation of a program of protected mobilization of the elbow. Traditionally, Regan and Morry's 5 classification of coronoid fractures is based on the anterior‐to‐posterior size of the fracture fragment, with a modifier to indicate the presence or absence of elbow dislocation: Type I–avulsion of the tip of the coronoid process, which does not require internal fixation; Type II–a single or comminuted fragment involving 50% or less of the process, which has a … Kälicke T, Muhr G, Frangen TM.

HHS Conclusion: When an associated radial head fracture is present, a lateral approach to the coronoid fracture is often performed. In patients with highly comminuted coronoid fractures or chronic lesions resulting in unstable elbows, reconstruction using a piece of the radial head (Esser technique) or a piece of the olecranon (Moritomo technique) has been described. [42] In this series, all fractures healed without displacement and there were no cases or neurovascular injury. Acta Orthop. Ring D. Fractures of the coronoid process of the ulna. Magentic resonance imaging (MRI) may be useful for evaluating soft-tissue structures but typically is not required. Radial head-capitellum view: an expanded imaging approach to elbow injury. If an associated radial head fracture has occurred, the coronoid can be approached through the radial head fracture site via a laterally based incision. Prophylaxis against heterotopic ossification may also be initiated on postoperative day 1. After exposure of the fracture site, the hematoma should be evacuated, and the edges of the fracture should be cleaned to facilitate anatomic reduction. Intra-articular flap fracture of the olecranon in a child. [Full Text]. [Medline]. Coronoid process fracture. Fracture of the coronoid process requiring open reduction with internal fixation. We choose conservative treatment for type I fractures unless the bone fragment affected movement of the elbow joint, in which case we chose operative treatment so that elbow stability was not affected. Temper Enthusiasm for Long-term Treatment With Bisphosphonates? 7 and 8). Coronoid fractures may be confused with radial head fragments. The ultimate goal of surgery for these fractures should be restoration of a stable arc of elbow motion within the functional range (30-130º).

They are most common in young adults and in older persons.4 The mechanism of injury tends to be different in these two groups, with the younger population generally sustaining fractures from high-energy trauma and the older population usually experiencing a low-impact injury, such as from a simple fall. Once the MCL (medial collateral ligament) has been protected, the coronoid fracture can be addressed. The role of the coronoid process in elbow stability.
