Young men at highest risk for closed reduction after elbow dislocation

January 26, 2015

Men 20 years of age or younger are at the highest risk of closed reduction following an elbow dislocation, according to recently published data.

Investigators culled information from administrative databases on 4,878 patients ages 16 years and older (median age, 41 years) who underwent closed elbow reduction between 1994 and 2010. The closed reduction incidence density rate (IDR) per 100,000 person-years was analyzed and a multivariate logistic regression model for failure was constructed. Failure was determined as subsequent open reduction with or without ligament repair or reconstruction within 90 days postoperatively.
