The Treatment of Coronoid Fractures and their Complications
Fractures of the coronoid process often occur as combined injuries with ligamentous tears and various osseous lesions. Previously, the treatment of such injuries was often focused on the associated lesions such as the fractured radial head. This was due in part to the rather difficult approach to the coronoid. In addition, the importance of the coronoid process has been rather underestimated.
