Managing the unstable elbow after injury or surgical release is often difficult and requires fixation of the aforementioned primary stabilizers, as well as the secondary stabilizers (radiocapitellar joint, joint capsule, forearm muscles that originate from the bones of the elbow). Elbow stability is determined by Bony factors Ligamentous factors Muscular factors Stabilising factors can be categorised as : Primary stabilisers MCL LCL Coronoid process Secondary stabilisers Head of radius Posterolateral capsule Anconeus muscle Concept ", "Open access journals are very useful for all scientists as they can have quick information in the different fields of science. Numerous studies of the kinematics/kinesiology and anatomy of the elbow joint based on human anatomic specimens of elbow joints yielded important and interesting implications for trauma and orthopaedic surgeons. The distal part of the LUCL, which ran from the AL to the supinator crest of the ulna, had three configurations. Cage et al. The capsule inserted an average distance of 6.4 mm distal to the coronoid tip; in only three of the 20 specimens, the capsule inserted to the tip of the coronoid. Biomechanics of elbow instability: the role of the medial collateral ligament Clin Orthop Relat Res 1980; 146: 42-52. examined 40 elbows of human anatomic specimens to characterise the anatomy of the LCLC [22Cohen MS, Hastings H. Rotatory instability of the elbow. These variations occurred on the medial side in 50% of the 39 cadaveric elbow joints and on the lateral side in 25%. O'Driscoll SW, Morrey BF, Korinek S, An KN. A complex joint, the elbow serves as a link in the lever arm system that positions the hand, as a fulcrum of the forearm lever, and as a load-carrying joint. Group LCLC 3 (25%) exhibited the LCL, the AL and an accessory collateral ligament. Biomechanical study of ligaments around the elbow joint Clin Orthop Relat Res 1991; 271: 170-9.] This study describes the anatomy of the elbow joint and biomechanics of the medial collateral ligament from the clinical point of view. True. The brachialis muscle had insertions at the elbow capsule, coronoid and proximal ulna. Relationship to medial instability J Bone Joint Surg Am 2000; 82(4): 555-60. Simulation of elbow and forearm motion in vitro using a load controlled testing apparatus J Biomech 2000; 33(5): 635-9.]. The articles are of high quality and broad scope. Posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow J Bone Joint Surg Am 1991; 73(3): 440-6. A bursa is a membranous sac filled with synovial fluid. The medial collateral ligament was completely ruptured or avulsed from the epicondyle in all cases. The radial and ulnar collateral ligaments connect and maintain the position of the radius and ulna relative to the epicondyles of the humerus. Of all the articles selected, the reference lists were searched for additional articles, surgical reconstruction techniques and postoperative treatments. The common wrist extensors also have been shown to substantially enhance stability of the lateral elbow. Left elbow joint with medial collateral ligaments [20Gray H. Anatomy of the human body. The influence of muscle loading on joint stability was determined by measuring the joint laxity both with and without the addition of simulated muscle loading. The aim of bracing is to limit valgus loading and supination. Surgeons treating elbow dislocation are concerned about two complications: stiffness and instability of the elbow joint. The transverse segment runs from the coronoid to the tip of the olecranon, i.e., one part of the ulna to another part of the ulna. In these cases, suture fixation of type I coronoid fracture had little effect on elbow stability. These in vitro biomechanical studies also have important consequences for diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of (post)-traumatic injuries of the elbow joint. The LUCL lies posterior to the LCL and the extensor carpi ulnaris muscle. Thirty-nine studies examining biomechanics and anatomy of the elbow joint on human anatomic specimen were selected for this review. Fuss also examined the MCL by visual inspection for the presence of taut fibre bundles [17Fuss FK. As a result, the neurovascular examination and documentation of all patients presenting with these injuries is vital. Jensen SL, Olsen BS, Tyrdal S, Sojbjerg JO, Sneppen O. Elbow joint laxity after experimental radial head excision and lateral collateral ligament rupture: efficacy of prosthetic replacement and ligament repair J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2005; 14(1): 78-84. Effectiveness of the lateral unilateral dynamic external fixator after elbow ligament injury J Bone Joint Surg Am 2007; 89(8): 1802-9.]. Share.

Range of motion can be measured reliably with a standard goniometer for assessing stiffness [4Armstrong AD, MacDermid JC, Chinchalkar S, Stevens RS, King GJ. The LCL and AL became confluent with the overlying supinator tendon and so the supinator tendon reinforced the LCL and AL. The secondary constraints are the radiohumeral articulation, the common flexor-pronator tendon, the common extensor tendon and the capsule. Armstrong et al. This conjoined tendon became taut with the forearm upon supination. There are many bursae in the elbow, but only a few have clinical importance: The joint capsule of the elbow is strengthened by ligaments medially and laterally. Valgus stability is present post reduction in the pronated forearm in all but stage 3 These are treated by immediate unlimited flexion / extension in a cast brace, applied with the forearm in full pronation in stage 3 If elbow is unstable in extension [caption id="attachment_5050" align="aligncenter" width="480"], [caption id="attachment_33074" align="aligncenter" width="829"], [caption id="attachment_10458" align="alignright" width="283"]. With the elbow in 90° of flexion, hold the distal forearm with one hand and gently stress the lateral aspect of the elbow joint with the other. Mobility and stability of the elbow joint are necessary for daily, recreational, and professional activities. Anatomy, function and biomechanics J Anat 1991; 175: 203-12. The radial head and the coronoid process are important bony stabilisers and act as buffers to prevent the forearm dislocating from the end of the humerus. The primary stability of the elbow is provided by the ulnar collateral ligament, located on the medial (inner) side of the elbow. A spectrum of instability Clin Orthop Relat Res 1992; (280): 186-97. The other static stabilisers are the anterior joint capsule, the medial and lateral collateral ligaments and the interosseous membrane. The anterior band/part of the AMCL is the most important band and flexion may relax this important band. When interpreting biomechanical studies, it is important to distinguish between studies with or without simulation of active muscle loading. In the second study, the maximum joint laxity in forced varus and external rotation (supination) occurred between 90-110° of flexion [47Olsen BS, Sojbjerg JO, Dalstra M, Sneppen O. Kinematics of the lateral ligamentous constraints of the elbow joint J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1996; 5(5): 333-41.]. The LUCL ran from the inferior part of the lateral epicondyle and blended with the AL. The elbow is composed of three separate joints, between three bones, and ligaments that provide stability. One hand is just above the elbow joint and other hand is placed on the wrist. If there is a loss of tone, such as in old age or stroke, the shoulder can dislocate. Simulated active control produces repeatable motion pathways of the elbow in an, Johnson JA, Rath DA, Dunning CE, Roth SE, King GJ. A complex joint, the elbow serves as a link in the lever arm system that positions the hand, as a fulcrum of the forearm lever, and as a load-carrying joint. Transmission of pressures acroos the elbow joint Anat Rec 1964; 150: 243-7.]. The dynamic part includes the muscles that cross the elbow joint. This rotatory instability with the forearm in supination was reduced significantly when active flexion was simulated. Eygendaal D, Verdegaal SH, Obermann WR, van Vugt AB, Pöll RG, Rozing PM. O'Driscoll SW, Bell DF, Morrey BF. ", "Open access journals are probably one of the most important contributions to promote and diffuse science worldwide. Physical examination of the elbow joint during circumstances that eliminate this dynamic stability can reveal chronic instability long after dislocation of an elbow. Articles are of uniformly high quality and written by the world's leading authorities. In contrast, passive motion may cause significant stability, particularly with the forearm maintained in pronation. Repeat in radioulnar joint in various degrees of pronation and supination. 20. This functional treatment is possible because of the functional, dynamic joint stability. Articular and ligamentous contributions to the stability of the elbow joint Am J Sports Med 1983; 11(5): 315-9. The AMCL insertion had an average distance of 18.4 mm dorsal to the coronoid tip and was attached to the free bone fragment, only in type III fractures. 20. The find out more about our cookies, click here. This is exactly what Open Access Journals provide and this is the reason why I support this endeavor. The elbow is the visible joint between the upper and lower parts of the arm.It includes prominent landmarks such as the olecranon, the elbow pit, the lateral and medial epicondyles, and the elbow joint.The elbow joint is the synovial hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the forearm which allows the forearm and hand to be moved towards and away from the body. The medial collateral ligament of the elbow joint: anatomy and kinematics J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1998; 7(4): 345-51. The bony insertion had an average length of 26.3 mm, with its proximal margin an average distance of 11 mm to the coronoid tip. It includes prominent landmarks such as the olecranon, the elbow pit, the lateral and medial epicondyles, and the elbow joint. Test For ; Ligamentous laxity, especially of the ulnar collateral ligament. If the elbow is stable in pronation, the AMCL can be assumed to be intact and the elbow can be treated immediately with a hinged cast-brace, with the forearm in full pronation. Studies were eligible for inclusion if they included anatomy and biomechanics of the elbow joint, as observed on human anatomic specimens. Original Author(s): Oliver Jones Last updated: January 22, 2019 Variations in the normal anatomy of the collateral ligaments of the human elbow joint J Anat 2000; 197(3): 507-11.]. Ligaments & Stability of Elbow: Primary static stabilizers . Generally, elbow subluxation and dislocation are discovered on radiographs taken for pain, deformity, swelling and ecchymosis, or crepitation. This is easily remembered as golfers aim for the 'middle' of the fairway, while tennis players aim for the 'lateral' line of the court! A separate band from the lateral epicondyle to the ulna, such as the LUCL in Fig. Kinematics of partial and total ruptures of the medial collateral ligament of the elbow J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1999; 8(6): 612-. The resulting ischaemia can cause Volkmann’s ischaemic contracture – uncontrolled flexion of the hand, as flexors muscles become fibrotic and short. 1223-1231, with permission from Rockwater and Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. Clinical Relevance: Injuries to the Elbow Joint. Philadelphia: WB Saunders Company 2010; pp. A surgical approach to the lateral side of the elbow should protect either the LUCL or the LCL. It is classed as a hinge-type synovial joint. Isometric fibres are found between the anterior and posterior bands of the AMCL (Fig. Relevant and timely articles are made available in a fraction of the time taken by more conventional publishers. One hand is just above the elbow joint and other hand is placed on the wrist. The coupled forearm rota- tion measured with valgus-varus loading was defined as rotatory laxity. Left elbow joint with lateral collateral ligaments [20Gray H. Anatomy of the human body. In a study with five fresh frozen upper extremities, maximum of 7.6° was observed in the valgus-varus direction of the ulnohumeral joint during flexion, with the weight of the forearm as stress [40Tanaka S, An K-N, Morrey BF. Insertion (type 1 and 2) of the lateral collateral ligament and annular ligament onto the ulna. Transmission of pressures acroos the elbow joint Anat Rec 1964; 150: 243-7. came to the same conclusion: either the anterior or posterior part of the LCLC can be transected without inducing posterolateral rotatory instability [51Deutch SR, Olsen BS, Jensen SL, Tyrdal S, Sneppen O. Ligamentous and capsular restraints to experimental posterior elbow joint dislocation Scand J Med Sci Sports 2003; 13(5): 311-6.]. For both instabilities, active mobilisation should be stimulated to improve muscular stability. ], pronation or neutral forearm rotation [43Olsen BS, Sojbjerg JO, Nielsen KK, Vaesel MT, Dalstra M, Sneppen O. Posterolateral elbow joint instability: the basic kinematics J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1998; 7(1): 19-29. Identification of elbow subluxation or dislocation. A kinematic study Acta Orthop Scand 1999; 70(1): 6-8.]. The role of the coronoid process in elbow stability. ", "Open access journals have transformed the way scientific data is published and disseminated: particularly, whilst ensuring a high quality standard and transparency in the editorial process, they have increased the access to the scientific literature by those researchers that have limited library support or that are working on small budgets. Assessment of elbow stability. determined the contribution of muscle force and forearm position to the stability of the LCLC-deficient elbow in ten fresh-frozen upper extremities, using a testing system that was capable of simulating active motion [35Dunning CE, Zarzour ZD, Patterson SD, Johnson JA, King GJ. During a period of twelve years, Josefsson et al. This category only includes cookies that ensures basic functionalities and security features of the website. Ligamentous stabilizers against posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow J Bone Joint Surg Am 2001; 83-A(12): 1823-8. ", "Open Access 'Chemistry' Journals allow the dissemination of knowledge at your finger tips without paying for the scientific content. The primary constraints are the anterior medial collateral ligament (AMCL), the lateral collateral ligament complex (LCLC) and the ulnohumeral articulation. The three bands of the Y structure in the lateral collateral ligament complex (LCLC). Upper extremity use depends largely on a functional elbow joint. ], which defined the axis of rotation of the LCL and MCL and the elongation-tension relationships of the AMCL, PMCL and the LCL. Therefore splinting and passive mobilisation for the MCL-deficient elbow should be done with the forearm in supination. Netherlands J Traumatol 2009; 17(5): 124-7.]. It is important that the testing apparatus is able to measure the dynamic muscular aspect of joint stability. After reducing the dislocation, the elbow should be tested for valgus stability in pronation. Callaway et al. Netherlands J Traumatol 2009; 17(5): 124-7. Numerous studies of the kinematics, kinesiology and anatomy of the elbow joint in human anatomic specimens yielded important and interesting implications for trauma and orthopaedic surgeons. This in itself is strong and fibrous, strengthening the joint. Joint stability can be functionally divided in static and dynamic aspects. Biomechanics of elbow instability: the role of the medial collateral ligament Clin Orthop Relat Res 1980; 146: 42-52.]. Cohen et al. The elbow joint is the synovial hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna of the forearm which allows the hand to be moved toward and away from the body. Biomechanical evaluation of the medial collateral ligament of the elbow J Bone Joint Surg Am 1997; 79(8): 1223-31.]. performed a study with simulated active motion and found that in patients with acute posterolateral rotatory instability after elbow dislocations and in patients with extended lateral surgical exposures, passive elbow flexion with the forearm in pronation can be used in rehabilitation because forearm pronation stabilised the LCL-deficient elbow [35Dunning CE, Zarzour ZD, Patterson SD, Johnson JA, King GJ. Functional anatomy of the ligaments of the elbow Clin Orthop Relat Res 1985; 201: 84-90. Closkey RF, Goode JR, Kirschenbaum D, Cody RP. Chicago 1965. The LCLC consists of the AL, radial collateral ligament or MCL, accessory lateral ligament and the LUCL (Fig. The combination of an elbow dislocation with a fracture of the radial head and the coronoid process is called a “terrible triad” due to the high rate of complications. For patients who are able to modify their activities, surgery may not be necessary. The other static stabilisers are the anterior joint capsule, the medial and lateral collateral ligaments and the interosseous membrane. The three joints of the elbow complex work together, to allow bending (flexion) and straightening (extension). Deutch SR, Olsen BS, Jensen SL, Tyrdal S, Sneppen O. Ligamentous and capsular restraints to experimental posterior elbow joint dislocation Scand J Med Sci Sports 2003; 13(5): 311-6. Group LCLC 4 (7%) exhibited a pattern that was a combination of that exhibited in groups 2 and 3. Y1 - 1991/12/1 . Anatomy, function and biomechanics J Anat 1991; 175: 203-12.]. During dislocation of the elbow joint, ligamentous damage occurs in a circle from lateral to medial, as described by O’Driscoll [8O'Driscoll SW, Morrey BF, Korinek S, An KN. The load to failure of each ligament was studied. It consists of two separate articulations: Note: The proximal radioulnar joint is found within same joint capsule of the elbow, but most resources consider it as a separate articulation. The first two types were the same as type I (n=8, bilobed) and the broad conjoined type II (n=9) from the study by Cohen and Hastings [22Cohen MS, Hastings H. Rotatory instability of the elbow. N-m across the elbow joint. The soft-tissue and articular surfaces that provide stability to the elbow share the capacity as a function of joint position and loading configuration. Takigawa et al. In contrast, passive motion may cause insignificant stability, particularly with the forearm maintained in pronation. The literature search retrieved 108 studies. Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes ligaments of the elbow and stability of the elbow. Studies about biomechanics of the elbow joint often refer to the article by Schwab et al., published in 1980 [15Schwab GH, Bennett JB, Woods GW, Tullos HS. They are an outstanding source of medical and scientific information. The articles are high standard and cover a wide area. Despite these ruptures of both collateral ligaments, patients can be treated functionally, which is characterised by early active motion within the limits of pain with or without the use of a sling, hinged brace or functional plaster. The elbow has inherent articular stability at the extremes of extension and flexion.In full extension, the humeroulnar joint is in a close-packed position. Is our article missing some key information? The LCL ran from the inferior part of the lateral epicondyle and blended with the AL. Reprinted from Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, volume 11, Seki A, Olsen BS, Jensen SL, Eygendaal D, Sojbjerg JO, Functional anatomy of the lateral collateral ligament complex of the elbow: configuration of Y and its role, 53-59, Copyright 2002, with permission from Elsevier. In group LCLC 2 (44%), the LCL, AL and LUCL were present. Schwab GH, Bennett JB, Woods GW, Tullos HS. Golfers experience pain in the medial epicondyle from the common flexor origin. Which of the following joints is the least stable? ], 70-90° of flexion, and forearm in pronation or neutral forearm rotation (to prevent radial head luxation in cases of additional LCLC lesions) [44Eygendaal D, Olsen BS, Jensen SL, Seki A, Sojbjerg JO. The pivot-shift test is performed with the forearm in supination and with application of valgus stress and an axial compression force to the elbow while it is flexed from full extension. [21Regan WD, Korinek SL, Morrey BF, An KN. Reduction of a posterior elbow dislocation should be carried out with a lax LCLC and therefore with a supinated forearm. concluded that supination provided the greatest stability during postoperative treatment for anteromedial dislocations; neutral rotation provided the greatest stability for posteromedial dislocation; pronation of the forearm was most effective for posterolateral dislocations [48Jensen SL, Olsen BS, Seki A, Ole SJ, Sneppen O.
