Which of the following is NOT a component of the elbow dislocation "Terrible Triad"? 

a. Elbow dislocation
b. Radial head fracture
c. Coronoid fracture
d. Radial nerve damage

Correct Answer is D


A severe injury, known as the Terrible Triad, includes an elbow dislocation, a radial head fracture, and a coronoid fracture. These are unstable injuries and require repair of the torn lateral collateral ligament (LCL), fixation or replacement of the radial head, and possible fixation of the coronoid depending on the size of the fracture fragment.
