Surgical Fixation of the Radial Head and Coronoid Fracture
Surgical Fixation of the Radial Head and Coronoid Fracture

This stock medical exhibit demonstrates a surgical fixation procedure of the radial head and coronoid fracture following an initial fixation of the olecranon of the right elbow. The pre-operative image clearly reveals radial head and coronoid fractures as well as an injury to the radial collateral ligament and the previously placed fixation hardware in place in the olecranon. Also included in this exhibit are the key steps involved in the fixation procedure. These images include the exposure of the additional fractures through an open surgical incision, the removal of loose chondral fragments, the resection of the fragmented radial head, the wire fixation of the coronoid fracture, the insertion of the replacement radial head prosthesis and the repair of the avulsed radial collateral ligament.
