Osteosynthesis of intra-and periarticular fractures of the distal humerus

Intra - and periarticular fractures of the distal humerus comprise from 0.5% to 15.3% of all fractures of the humerus and 3.5 - 5% of all fractures in adults. In recent years, the growing injury, including the localization. Treatment of fractures of the elbow joint is complex and not fully resolved problem of modern traumatology and orthopedics. This is due to the peculiarities of the structure and biomechanics of the elbow joint, predisposition to the occurrence of heterotopic ossification and the development of posttraumatic contractures. Incorrect healing of fractures leads to complications, so you need the exact matching of fragments. Treatment of intra - and periarticular fractures of the distal humerus remains a topical problem in traumatology. Common, both domestic and foreign authors, is the tactics of surgical treatment of such damage. This article presents one of methods of osteosynthesis of the lower third of the humerus is subcutaneous-subfascialosteosynthesis. © 2019, Advanced Scientific Research. All rights reserved.
