Most dislocations result in injury to all of the capsuloligamentous stabilizers which proceeds laterally to medially across the elbow. Ross et al do make one disclaimer: "The high success rate may be due in part to the excellent patient motivation and nearly unlimited resources for rehabilitation." It should also be noted that "normal" arm size was achieved at 6.5 days post-injury, indicating diminished effects of disuse atrophy. While this may in part be true, there is evidence that some patients do well with less supervision.1 In addition, it should be noted that the level of supervision could be performed by a physical therapist, today’s reimbursement systems not withstanding. The aims of treatment are to achieve a stable, functional joint to allow early comfortable range of motion, and to minimise long-term sequelae.
