Abstract:
The pulled elbow(PE) is a common childhood injury. In most cases, the clinical management is straight forward, however, the diagnosis and management may be difficult if there is an unclear history, an unwitnessed injury or an atypical mechanism of injury. This medical literature project evaluates the effectiveness of point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnosis of PEs.
