In this article, we present a unique case of traumatic partial recurrent extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) subluxation in an elite hockey player. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only report of partial ECU subluxation due to a split in the ECU tendon presented in the literature. This case illustrates the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of such a lesion. We also emphasize that dynamic ultrasound is an excellent and cost-effective imaging modality that can help with the diagnosis of partial ECU subluxation. Finally, surgical treatment for failed conservative management showed excellent results in an elite athlete.
