[Effecive observation of percutaneous reduction and Kirschner pin fixation for treatment of supracondylar fracture of humerus in children].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To study on the clinic effect of percutaneous reduction and Kirschner's pins fixation for treatment of supracondylar fracture of humerus in children. METHODS From June 2001 to Nov. 2007, 26 patients of supracondylar fracture of humerus in children were reviewed. All patients were treated by the fixation of percutaneous reduction and Kirschner's pins under the C-arm X-ray machine. These patients were included 16 males and 10 females with the age from 3 to 10 years. There were 17 cases on the left and 9 cases on the right. There were 24 cases of extension type and 2 cases of flexing type and all the cases were considered as closed fracture without any injury on nerve and vascular. These patients were all under operation from half an hour to 7 days after being injured, and 15 of them were sent to the hospital and received operation immediately. RESULTS These 26 cases were followed-up for 3 to 9 months, all fractures of them were healing. According to the comprehensive evaluation, the result of 16 cases were excellent, 8 cases were good, and 2 cases were fine. CONCLUSION From the research, the method of percutaneous reduction and Kirschner's pins fixation for treatment of supracondylar fracture of humerus in children with the assistance from C-arm X-ray machine is safe, convenient, less injured, with reliable fixation, complication-minimizing, and easy for functional recover.
