Outcomes following distal humeral fracture fixation with an extensor mechanism-on approach.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Distal humeral fractures have traditionally been managed with surgical approaches that disrupt the extensor mechanism. We hypothesized that an extensor mechanism-on approach for operative fixation of distal humeral fractures with parallel or orthogonal plate constructs would allow excellent healing, a motion arc of the elbow exceeding 100°, and… (More)
