These high opioid doses were likely to be seen in patients undergoing three procedures known to have considerable postoperative pain: pectus repair, posterior arthrodesis, and supracondylar fracture
Therefore, the possibility of supracondylar fracture
of humerus (which is the most common fracture around the elbow in children) and elbow dislocation were kept in mind.
Definitive treatment of fractures and dislocations by closed reduction was done in total of 15 cases which included 9 cases of distal radius fracture, 1 supracondylar fracture
humerus, 2 cases of shoulder dislocation, 1 hip, 1 elbow and 1 case of peritalar subluxation.
The inclusion criteria were as follows: being from 1 to 15 years of age, having suffered an isolated humeral supracondylar fracture
(treated at HOPU), and having had a minimum of 1 year of follow-up after management.
Peripheral paresis of upper extremity nerves following supracondylar fracture
of the humerus in children.
of the femur following prosthetic knee arthroplasty.
The most frequent fracture was the Garland III supracondylar fracture
of the humerus (23.
Background: Supracondylar fracture
of humerus in children is distinct from that of adults.
The epidemiology of paediatric supracondylar fracture
fixation: a population-based study.
Background and Objective: Supracondylar fracture
of the humerus is the most common elbow fracture in children.
In addition, the Bier block should not be used in procedures which require monitoring of pulses in the distal extremity, such as a supracondylar fracture
The management of Type III supracondylar fracture
involves closed reduction and percutaneous K-wire fixation but the best pin configuration for the stabilization of the fractures following satisfactory reduction in children is controversial.
