Abstract

This is a review of current evaluation and treatment recommendations for pediatric radial neck fractures, including a series of cases that were presented and reviewed by a panel at The Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America annual meeting 2010. We summarize the different published techniques for closed, percutaneous, and open reduction, and review when these techniques are recommended. The potential complications that can arise from radial neck fractures and their treatment are discussed.
