Dislocation of the head of the radial bone associated with the perinatal brachial plexus palsy

The dislocation of the head of the radial bone is sometimes connected to perinatal damage to the brachial plexus. Considering the different interpretation of the aetiology of the dislocation of the head of the radial bone and the different therapeutic treatment of this injury, this article presents the views related to this issue. They were supplemented with the x-ray documentation of 3 children the with perinatal injury of the brachial plexus with concomitant dislocation of the head of the radial bone. For rehabilitation, these children were admitted in a period distant from the injury itself to the Functional Adaptation Clinic at the Rehabilitation Clinic of the Children’s Health Institute in Warsaw.It ought to be noted that a delay in the diagnosis of damage to an elbow significantly reduces the possibility of regaining its optimal function.
