Extract

Complex instability of the elbow is the condition resulting from both the injury and the resultant loss of function due to damage to the articular surface and the ligamentous structures that stabilize the elbow. The clinical presentation may be subluxation, or it may be incongruity with malalignment in either the lateral or the anteroposterior plane. The specific goal of this report is to provide a rationale for the reliable treatment of a spectrum of these acute injuries. To accomplish this, the relative contributions of the articulation and the ligaments to normal stability, as well as their interactions, must first be defined.
