The management of intra-articular distal humeral fractures remains a difficult surgical problem. Although an olecranon osteotomy provides excellent exposure for management of these fractures, a number of complications can occur after the creation and repair of the osteotomy including nonunion, malunion, hardware failure, and pain secondary to prominent hardware. In an effort to reduce the incidence of these complications, the senior authors now use contoured 3.5 mm reconstruction plates for the… CONTINUE READING
