A radial head fracture is a fracture in the section of the radius near the elbow. This injury is the most common elbow joint fracture in adults.
In the case of complex fractures, the orthopaedist can expect capsule or ligament injuries. This in turn significantly impacts aftercare and healing.
Treatment must account for the type of fracture and the concomitant ligament injury to avoid complications and late complications due to poor healing. A radial head fracture should therefore always be treated by an elbow specialist to prevent grave secondary failures. The elbow specialists at Gelenk-Klinik will gladly see you and would be happy to help you.
