the elbow is the second most frequently dislocated major joint, after the shoulder. It is the most commonly dislocated joint in children. [1] More than 90% of all elbow dislocations are posterior dislocations. This injury entails disengagement of the coronoid process of the ulna from the trochlea of the humerus with movement posteriorly. [2] The mechanism of injury is typically a fall onto an outstretched hand (FOOSH) with the elbow in extension upon impact.
