Excerpt

Radial-head fractures are common injuries to the upper extremity and comprise nearly one-third of all fractures around the elbow, occurring with an estimated incidence of 2.5 per 10,000 people per year1. The incidence of these injuries is bimodal based on sex, with peak incidence occurring in the fourth decade of life in men and in the sixth decade of life in women. This sex difference is due to a higher-energy injury mechanism in young men compared with lower-energy fragility fractures in women2,3.
