Dislocations in children are rarer injuries than fractures. When the dislocation mechanisms are considered, the resulting energy causes growth plate fractures and injuries more frequently until dislocation occurs. It can occur with simple falls or with high-energy injuries both inside and outside the vehicle. The elbow dislocations are the most common. The dislocation should be intervened as soon as possible. Most of them can easily be reduced by closed reduction maneuvers. However, in cases of reduction failure, surgical treatment should be performed for instability, open dislocation, neurovascular injury and presence of bone fragments trapped within the joint.
