Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the X-ray diagnosis and signs analysis of children with occult elbow fractures, so as to make a basis for clinical judgment. Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 60 patients with elbow injury admitted to Qingdao affiliated hospital from June 2017 to November 2018, and no fractures were found in any of the 60 patients during the first X-ray examination. According to the bone conditions, the patients were divided into study group with occult elbow fractures and control group without it, with 30 cases in each group. Results: The author found that the rates of cortical humeral collicular protuberance, cortical depression, positive rate of fat pad, positive rate of humerus front, and trabecular disruption in the study group were significantly higher than those in the control group, and the differences were statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: For children with occult elbow fractures, X-ray diagnosis can effectively determine obvious symptoms, which is conductive to clinical judgment and detection, and thus is worthy of clinical promotion and application.
