Le Coude - Démo

Fracture of the head of the Radiuskop


The head of the radius is almost certainly fractured if there is
  • Posttraumatic haemartrosis
  • A traumatic arthritis combined with painful pro- and supination movements.
  • Pain and weakness on resisted flexion and -supination.

A Radiograph may be negative during the first few days and will confirm the diagnosis only after one or two weeks.

Treatment is immobilization or surgery.
