Olecranon fractures are clinically and radiographically obvious, and usually require open reduction and internal fixation. It is important to remember that the ulnar nerve is closely related to the medial aspect of the olecranon and, although not common, nerve injury may complicate these fractures 2. Olecranon fractures are easy to diagnose provided a lateral x-ray of the elbow is obtained.

They appear as a lucency usually reaching the trochlear groove articular surface and are, in most cases, displaced. Radiology reports should not only include whether or not a fracture is present but also comment on:. Occasionally when undisplaced non-operative treatment with immobilization at 30 degrees of flexion is possible 2. Unlike many other intra-articular fractures, olecranon fractures result in relatively little secondary osteoarthritic changes, probably on account of most fractures occurring through a relatively non-articular part of the trochlear groove 1.

Most of the symptoms relate to prominence of hardware given the little overlying soft tissues 1. Occasionally ulnar nerve injury can result in long-term sensory and motor impairment, most marked in the hand. There is usually little differential, especially in adults, and when the clinical presentation is that of trauma to the elbow with pain, swelling and lack of mobility.

In young patients, one must consider unfused olecranon epiphysis 3. Extremely rarely it can mimic a patella cubiti. Please Note: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. Updating… Please wait. Unable to process the form. Check for errors and try again.

Olecranon fracture - Emergency Department

An olecranon oh-LEK-rah-nun fracture is a break in the bony "tip" of the elbow. This pointy segment of bone is part of the ulna, one of the three bones that come together to form the elbow joint. The olecranon is positioned directly under the skin of the elbow, without much protection from muscles or other soft tissues. It can break easily if you experience a direct blow to the elbow or fall on an outstretched arm. A fracture can be very painful and make elbow motion difficult or impossible. Treatment for an olecranon fracture depends upon the severity of the injury. Some simple fractures can be treated by wearing a splint until the bone heals.
