MIYAZAKI, Alberto Naoki et al. Brachial artery injury due to closed posterior elbow dislocation: case report☆. Rev. bras. ortop. [online]. 2016, vol.51, n.2, pp.239-243. ISSN 0102-3616.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rboe.2016.02.007.

An association between closed posterior elbow dislocation and traumatic brachial artery injury is rare. Absence of radial pulse on palpation is an important warning sign and arteriography is the gold-standard diagnostic test. Early diagnosis is essential for appropriate treatment to be provided. This consists of joint reduction and immobilization, along with urgent surgical restoration of arterial flow. Here, a case (novel to the Brazilian literature) of an association between these injuries (and the treatment implemented) in a 27-year-old male patient is reported. These injuries were sustained through physical assault.
