Abstract

Summary:

Damage to the brachial artery associated with closed elbow dislocation but without accompanying fracture is rare. Only 25 cases have been reported to date. We present a case that responded well to brachial artery vein grafting, and review the literature on this subject. Operative repair is recommended in this uncommon complication of closed dislocation of the elbow
