The PIN is the motor branch of the radial nerve after bifurcation nearby the cubital crease.
This nerve surrounds the bicipital tuberosity
, the ulnar and radial nerve are particularly at risk of iatrogenic injury ( 30 , 35 ). Prior to the procedure, physical examination under anesthesia should be performed, measuring the ROM, testing the elbow for instability, and localizing the position

Manipulation under anaesthesia
There are few reports describing results after this procedure and we have seen referred cases with iatrogenic fractures caused by aggressive manipulation under anaesthesia without
