Elbow dislocations are the most common dislocations after shoulder dislocations. They usually occur as a result of falling on the open hand. Diagnosis can be made mostly by clinical examination and direct radiographs. There may be other soft tissue and bone injuries accompanying some dislocations. Treatment can be conservative or surgical. Recurrent dislocations, elbow joint stiffness, heterotopic ossification and neurovascular complications can be observed.
