The cortical irregularity in the transition zone of the radial head and neck: a reliable radiographic sign of an occult radial head fracture

Abstract

Exclusion or detection of non-displaced radial head fractures can be difficult in radiographs, because they might lack conclusive radiographic signs, such as fracture lines or distracted articular fragments. Based on the typical injury mechanism of a radial head fracture, causing the head to hit the capitulum and leading to a depression of the anterolateral… (More)
