FRATELLI, Rodrigo; CASALES, Nicolás; OEHLER, Mauricio  y  FRANCESCOLI, Luis. Post-traumatic instability of the elbow. Review. Anfamed [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.1, pp.68-81. ISSN 2301-1254.  http://dx.doi.org/10.25184/anfamed2018v5n1a4.

Introduction:

Dislocations are 10% to 25% of all elbow injuries. Up to 15% of patients with symptoms of instability can be observed. The aim of this study is to review in the literature the different treatments proposed for this complication after a simple elbow dislocation.

Materials and Methods:

The search was conducted on: Medline (PubMed interface) and Bireme including the last ten years studies. Articles that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria were selected, and the relevant data and results were extracted. We found a total of 596 articles, 10 met the inclusion criteria proposed at the start of the search.

Discussion:

We analyzed and compared the rates of instability after dislocation, the different types of treatment and complications.

Conclusion:

There is consensus in the analyzed literature that an elbow stability test should be performed in acute conditions to define the treatment.Comparative studies are lacking for recommending a definite treatment for elbow instability.
