Essex Lopresti Fracture

Location: http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/essex_lopresti_fracture

- radial head fracture plus dislocation of distal RU joint (& interosseous membrane disruption);
- mechanism: fall from height;
- in this type of frx, radius will also migrate proximally if radial head is excised;
- if injury is not found when it is acute, pt may develop severe wrist pain ...

Simultaneous dislocation of the radial head and distal radio-ulnar joint

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2556052/

Isolated dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint and isolated dislocation of the radial head in adults are not common injuries. A simultaneous dislocation of the radial head and distal radio-ulnar joint with no other injury seems to be extremely rare since only one report was found in the English literature....

The Essex-Lopresti injury

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2686054/

The Essex-Lopresti injury consists of a radial head fracture with associated injury to the forearm interosseus membrane and longitudinal instability of the distal radioulnar joint. Early recognition of this disorder usually results in a predictable and satisfactory outcome. However, when this disorder is unrecognized, late reconstruction is challenging and unpredictable,...

Ulnar shortening osteotomy for ulnar impaction Essex-Lopresti syndrome

Location: http://www.eatonhand.com/img/img00070.htm

The Essex-Lopresti syndrome may develop after a proximal radial fracture such as a radial head fracture, excision of the radial head for fracture, or a displaced proximal radial shaft fracture. The Essex-Lopresti syndrome results when such a fracture, associated with disruption of the forearm interosseous membrane, allows proximal migration...
