An elbow dislocation occurs when the upper arm and forearm get separated from their normal position.

Elbow dislocations are the second most common joint dislocation, following shoulder dislocations.
The system, which is designed for patients with destabilized radial head fractures, includes side loading spacers and single-use instrument kits to save time in the OR, improve efficiency and reduce costs, according to the release. It is reportedly the first system to use radiolucent trials that allow for better visualization of the elbow joint during trials and more accurate implant sizing during surgery.
