Elbow dislocation resulted in longer removal from play among high school athletes

February 6, 2016

Compared with nondislocation-associated elbow injuries, high school athletes who had elbow dislocations experienced longer removal from play and were more likely to require surgical treatment, according to results.

Researchers analyzed sports-related injury data for the 2005 to 2006 through 2013 to 2014 academic years from 810 high schools that participated in the National High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study. Of 1,246 elbow injuries, 115 (9.2%) were elbow dislocations and athletic trainers reported 30,415,179 athlete exposures.
