Abstract

The evaluation and treatment of elbow injuries in throwing athletics has been the topic of numerous articles. The intense and repetitive stresses placed on the elbow may, in rare instances, produce undisplaced olecranon stress fractures. Two cases are presented and the literature is reviewed to propose that the fractures can be successfully treated by conservative methods.
