Distal humerus fractures in adults are treated by open reduction and internal fixation, which produces good results in the majority of patients. However, in elderly patients or in cases with metaphyseal comminution, stable fracture fixation still remains problematic. Anatomical joint reconstruction and primary stable osteosynthesis are often particularly difficult to achieve in this group of patients since poor bone mineral quality is frequently encountered. Consequently, longer immobilization… CONTINUE READING
