Olecranon Fracture

This is a fracture to the most prominent bone of the elbow. Often referred to as the “funny bone,” the olecranon is actually the bone at the end of the ulna, one of the two forearm bones, and is attached to the powerful triceps muscle of the arm. Since the triceps muscle is used to straighten the elbow, an olecranon fracture can greatly impair a patient's ability to straighten the elbow joint.
