Abstract provided by Publisher
Congenital radial head dislocation is a rare condition which is, however, the most common of all congenital pathologies of the elbow joint. This paper is a case report on a patient presenting with moderate pain and discomfort in one of his elbow joints, both of which were found to be affected by this condition. He was treated by surgery which consisted of resection of the proximal radius and partial anterior capsulectomy of the elbow joint. This treatment led to a significant improvement in pain and elbow function compared to the preoperative status.
