Abstract

Dislocation of the ulnar nerve with snapping triceps syndrome has been implicated as a cause of cubital tunnel syndrome. Patients with this condition may clinically present with a snapping sensation at the elbow upon flexion along with ulnar neuropathic symptoms. Though demonstration of this condition is possible by static MRI images, ultrasound can be used as a more accessible and inexpensive modality for attaining diagnosis. This pictorial essay emphasises the technique, findings and role of dynamic ultrasound in the diagnosis of this entity.
