Anterior transolecranon dislocation of the elbow in a child
Anterior transolecranon dislocation of the elbow is rarely observed in children. The present case has been reported in the World Journal of Orthopaedics.

The present case involves an anterior transolecranon dislocation of the left elbow joint in a 7-year-old child, which was surgically treated. Two attempts of closed reduction failed because the radial head had buttonholed via the joint capsule.

After its release, open reduction was easily performed; osteosynthesis of the olecranon was not performed. Remarkably, good result was obtained, despite a mild flexion deformity at the last follow-up. This case report aims to highlight this treatment method, which may be considered for such an uncommon injury.
