Lateral Condylar Humerus Fractures: Which Ones Should We Fix?

Song, Kwan Soon MD*; Waters, Peter M. MD*,†

Collapse Box


Lateral condyle fractures of the distal humerus are problematic whether displaced early or late. Operative intervention with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning or open reduction internal fixation are indicated for a malaligned articular surface and/or an unstable fracture. Intraoperative arthrograms can aid the surgeon in assessing joint reduction.
