Abstract

Currently, a number of examination and imaging techniques exist for diagnosing posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow. Although the posterolateral rotatory drawer is the primary examination maneuver, other special tests include the lateral pivot-shift test, prone push-up test, chair push-up test, and tabletop push-up test. In addition, posterolateral rotatory instability can be evaluated using radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, dynamic fluoroscopy, or dynamic ultrasound. In this Technical Note, each of these tests is described in detail. Video instruction is also provided to further explain the techniques and provide examples of positive tests.
