Use of intra-medullary stacked nailing in the reduction of proximal plastic deformity in a pediatric Monteggia fracture: a case report

Abstract

INTRODUCTION In a Monteggia fracture dislocation, it is important to reduce the ulnar fracture completely. Extensive plastic deformation of the proximal ulna may make reduction by closed manipulation impossible. CASE PRESENTATION We report the case of a four-year-old Caucasian boy in whom the plastic deformation of the proximal ulna was reduced, and this… (More)
