Archive: PDF Only

The treatment of recent dislocations of the elbow is simple, and the results are satisfactory, if the principles which have been enumerated are strictly followed. The most important complication arising from a dislocation of the elbow is the formation of new bone (myositis ossificans), which can be prevented. When a dislocation remains unreduced, or when the elbow is fixed, due to the formation of new bone, excision of the elbow by the method described has given satisfactory results.
