Abstract

Recognition of the pattern of an elbow fracture-dislocation allows immediate knowledge of the treatment principles, pitfalls, and prognosis of the injury. Specific techniques for each injury component increase the surgeon's ability to restore stability to the elbow. When complications are anticipated and avoided or addressed expediently, it is possible to restore elbow function in spite of the complexity of these injuries.
