Rupture of the lateral collateral ligamentous complex of the elbow is a serious injury. If direct repair of the ligamentous complex is not possible, then an alternative method must be found to stabilise the elbow.
We describe a novel method of maintaining stability while allowing early movement in a severe injury to the elbow.
This technique is a viable alternative to hinged external fixation in patients with severe lateral instability of the elbow joint.
