PATIENT PRESENTATION

A 38-year-old woman arrives to the emergency room complaining of 10/10 elbow pain. She reports she was running in the street, did not see a hole in the road and experienced a “hard” fall against the concrete. She continued to report putting out her arm to attempt to dampen the fall, but felt immediate sharp pain in her elbow upon impact. The woman demonstrated increased upper extremity (UE) guarding with any attempted elbow movements and visible deformity at the distal elbow with edema. Upon palpation, patient demonstrated tenderness directly over radial head. Crepitus was noted with forearm supination. X-rays were performed and patient was found to have a displaced proximal radial head fracture.
