          Abstract

          Isolated traumatic anteromedial radial head dislocation is an uncommon injury in adults. The brachialis tendon interposition rarely interferes with the radial head reduction procedure. In the present paper, we report the case of an 18-year-old male who sustained an injury to his right elbow during a wrestling match and developed isolated anteromedial radial head dislocation. Open reduction had to be performed due to entrapment of the radial head at the brachialis tendon.

          Irreducible isolated dislocation of the radial head.

          Isolated dislocation of the radial head in adults is a rare injury. A 20-year-old man received a direct blow to his elbow and sustained an isolated anterior dislocation of the radial head. Open reduction was required because soft tissue interposition prevented reduction by closed manipulation. At operation the annular ligament was found to be ruptured and interposed between the articular surfaces, preventing reduction. A satisfactory result was obtained 1 year after surgery.

            Irreducible isolated dislocation of the radial head in a skeletally mature teenager. A case report.

             Ebenezer Kong (1992)
            Isolated dislocation of the radial head is an uncommon injury. This injury has been reported in children; in the skeletally mature it is extremely rare. An irreducible dislocation has been previously reported in a young child, but no case has to date been reported in an adult. The present case is reported to demonstrate this rare injury and to suggest a possible explanation for the cause of the irreducibility.
