PMID: 32910581.


Gymnasts may suffer elbow injuries due to repetitive loading. However, coronoid stress fractures remain uncommon. We report a case of a high-level female competitive gymnast with a nondisplaced coronoid stress fracture that failed to heal with conservative management. Arthroscopic-assisted in situ fixation of the coronoid nonunion was performed, and the gymnast returned to competition after the fracture healed.
