Right Elbow Joint Reduction, Ulnar Nerve Decompression, and Soft Tissue Repair
This exhibit depicts right elbow joint reduction, ulnar nerve decompression, and soft tissue repair after a traumatic elbow subluxation. After reducing the elbow joint, the triceps and anconeus were sutured together, and secured to the medial humerus with a suture anchor. The common extensor tendon tears were also repaired with sutures and reattached to the humerus with a suture anchor. The cubital tunnel was then released, decompressing the ulnar nerve. Side-to-side sutures were used to repair the flexor pronator origin to the medial collateral ligament. Suture anchors were utilized to reattach the medial collateral ligament to the sublime tubercle of the ulna and the medial epicondyle of the humerus.
