Abstract

Posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow in the absence of epiphyseal injury is extremely rare in children. We present a case of 12-year-old child in whom recurrent dislocation of the elbow was associated with a stretched lateral ulnar collateral ligament. We performed surgical repair and reefing of a stretched lateral ulnar collateral ligament by using a suture anchor and a continuous locking suture in order to avoid donor site morbidity and damage of the growth plate, which could occur when a transosseous tunnel for reconstruction was made. At 12 months after operation, satisfactory symptom relief was observed with no evidence of recurrence.
