Supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The supracondylar fractures of the hu­merus are the most common type of elbow fractures in children. They occur in either extension or fle­xion pattern. Both patterns have three types distin­guished by degree of displacement. This article deals with anatomy and embriology of the distal part of the humerus, reviews the symptoms, out­lines treatment principles and describes the general accepted methods of treatment and the treatment complications of supracondylar fractures.
