Ok for those in the know,
There is a comminuted fracture of the head and neck of the radius.The head of the radius is fractured into multiple fragments with a large triangular shape fragment lying in the posterior aspect of the elbow joint. There is approx 40% of the articular cortex of the radial head lying adjacent to the capitellium in a roughly congruent alignment. There are multiple smaller fracture fragments within the humerothochlear compartment, of coronoid orogin. At the posterior margin of the olecinanon is a further larger fracture fragment.
Ohh the image is after they installed my titanium bitty.
