The purpose of this study was to compare the triceps-sparing approach with olecranon osteotomy regarding their effects on the functional outcomes of intercondylar fractures of the distal humerus managed with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), by reviewing 67 cases of intercondylar distal humerus fractures surgically managed with either of the approaches during 2001-2009. The medical records and radiographs of 30 male and 37 female patients, with a mean age of 44.5 years (range, 16-77… CONTINUE READING
