Ipsilateral Combined Monteggia Type II Equivalent and Galeazzi Injuries with Radial Head Fracture in an Adult Patient – Case Report and Literature Review

Abstract

Silvan Azzopardi, Lyndon W. Mason, Abijit Guha and Andrew Rogers

We report the occurrence of a radial head fracture (Mason Johnston type 4), combined with a Monteggia type II equivalent fracture and Galeazzi fracture pattern in the same forearm of a 19-year-old man involved in a road traffic accident.

Fractures of the radius and ulna bones were openly reduced and fixed; the radial head fracture was managed conservatively. The case was complicated by elbow dislocation and radioulnar instability, which was treated conservatively with a satisfactory outcome.
