Os supratrochleare dorsale

Dr Mostafa El-Feky and Dr Henry Knipe et al.

Os supratrochleare dorsale is an accessory ossicle of the elbow located in the olecranon fossa of the humerus 1. It may become symptomatic due to trauma during elbow extension and as such may require surgical removal 2. The differential diagnosis is an intra-articular loose body but the treatment if symptomatic remains the same 3.
