13 Possible Causes for Elbow Malalignment, Forearm Pain

  • Radial Head Fracture

    Signs and symptoms of a radial head fracture Patients with this condition typically experience a sudden onset of sharp, intense elbow or forearm pain at the time of injury[] Some patients have fractures which are more severe, and the malaligned fracture fragments can create a mechanical block to elbow or forearm range of motion.[] Immediate pain relief should be achieved to allow initial physical examination and to start active forearm rotation as pain allows.[]

  • Elbow Fracture

    If there is significant wrist pain and/or central forearm pain, there may be acute longitudinal radioulnar dissociation with disruption of the distal radioulnar joint.[] Pinning the prevents malalignment of the elbow. Malalignment occurs in hyperextension, which prevents full elbow range of motion.[] Posterior dislocation of the elbow without fractures. Note malalignment of the radiocapitellar line and ulnotrochlear joints.[]

  • Madelung Deformity

    Our results show statistically significant improvement in grip strength and range of movement of the wrist and forearm.[] The range of movement of the wrist was measured with the patient seated; the elbow flexed to 90 and the forearm pronated 9.[] Uniqueness: Madelung deformity can result in wrist pain and loss of forearm rotation, leading to decreased function of the wrist and hand.[]

  • Osteochondritis Dissecans

    Patients were assessed for elbow pain, range of elbow and forearm motion, Timmerman- Andrews elbow score, return to sports activity level, and radiographic evidence of healing[] Biomechanics suggested that the varus malalignment caused repetitive axial force across the medial elbow, which led to microtrauma to the trochlea during the patient's daily[]

  • Hyperabduction Syndrome

    Pt. then asked to supinate & pronate the forearm. Pain worse on pronation indicates a SLAP tear. (Mimori et al.[] Causes External Pressure Crutch use Leaning on one elbow, or the arm hanging over a chair Internal Pressure Bony callus Joint subluxation Muscular hypertonicity from postural[] Nerve compression causes atrophy and weakness of the muscles of the hand and, in advanced cases, of the forearm, with pain and sensory disturbances in the arm.[]

  • Variegate Porphyria

Am J Ortho 1995 (24:79-84). 56.[] In this disorder of autosomal dominant inheritance, malalignment is most prominent at the knees, but is also evident at the elbows and wrists.[] .: A Surgical Technique of Radioulnar Osteoclasis to Correct Severe Forearm Rotational Deformities. J Pediatr Orthop 1995 (15:53-58).[]

  • Radial Hemimelia

    Conclusions Lengthening of short forearm is functionally, cosmetically, and psychologically beneficial.[] ; - Surgical Treatment Options: - considerations: - historically reconstructive procedures on the wrist were avoided w/ a stiff elbow, however, in many cases, the PT can increase[] Textual support, English Record number: 42, Textual support number: 1 DEF A complex of symptoms resulting from injury or compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow, with pain[]

X-rays are needed to confirm the diagnosis.[]
