Abstract

Pediatric orthopedic injuries are a common reason for presentation to the emergency department. This article sequentially discusses 2 important upper extremity injuries that require prompt management in the emergency department. Radial head subluxations are discussed with a focus on current evidence for imaging, reduction techniques, and follow-up. Elbow dislocations, although less common than radial head subluxations, are also addressed, highlighting imaging, reduction, immobilization, and follow-up recommendations.
