PURPOSE To identify with magnetic resonance imaging the location and severity of ligamentous injury after acute elbow dislocations. Based on observations that many elbow dislocations arise from an initial acute valgus load, we hypothesized that all patients would have a high-grade medial injury but not all would demonstrate injury of the lateral ligaments. METHODS The medial collateral ligament was subdivided into anterior bands of the anterior bundle of the medial collateral ligament (MCL… CONTINUE READING
