Evaluation and management of supracondylar fractures in children

Location: http://www.uptodate.com/patients/content/topic.do?topicKey=~zQfmzji1xrnTWX4

Supracondylar fractures are the most common pediatric elbow fracture and carry significant potential for neurovascular compromise [1-4]. These fractures of the distal humerus are frequently problematic in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and complications [1]. Proper care requires appropriate assessment and prompt orthopedic care for those patients whose fractures pose the...

Supracondylar nailing of sistal femoral fractures after total knee arthroplasty

Location: http://www.sicot.org/resources/File/IO_reports/03-2003/2-03-2003.pdf

We present results of supracondylar nailing in six patients who suffered distal femoral fractures above total knee arthroplasty. The average age of patients was 68 (42-92) years. All six fractures healed in a satisfactory alignment in an average duration of 14.6 weeks. There were no wound infection, loss of reduction...

Pediatric supracondylar fractures of the distal humerus

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2682409/

Supracondylar fractures of the humerus are a common pediatric elbow injury that are historically associated with morbidity due to malunion, neurovascular complications, and compartment syndrome. True anteroposterior and lateral radiographs are essential not only for an accurate diagnosis, but also for creating a treatment plan for these injuries. A staging...

Supracondylar fractures are the most common elbow fractures in children. The standard treatment for many years has been to treat Type 3 fractures as an emergency with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning the same day as presentation. The rationale behind treating Type 3 fractures the same day, was to avoid an...

Author: Steven I Rabin, MD 2004
Supracondylar femur fractures require anatomically stable internal fixation for best results, which usually necessitates surgical treatment. These fractures usually occur in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities and osteoporotic bone; thus, a high rate of complications exists. Severely comminuted distal femur fractures are especially difficult fractures...

Ulnar nerve injury following medial wire placement in percutaneous fixation of supraconylar humeral fractures is well recognised. We investigated techniques that may be used to minimise the occurrence and severity of nerve lesions when using percutaneous methods. 4 sheep post euthanasia had K-wires passed through percutaneous nerves before fixation to...
