BACKGROUND: The optimal treatment for pediatric lateral condyle fractures displaced >2 mm, but with little joint displacement is unclear. The purpose of this study was to assess clinical and radiographic outcomes and complication rates of patients undergoing open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) versus closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation (CRPP) of lateral condyle fractures with >2 mm of displacement and no obvious articular surface incongruity. METHODS: A retrospective review of all children with acute lateral condyle fractures with 2...

BACKGROUND: In the pediatric population, reports of a concomitant lateral condyle fracture (LCF) of the humerus and an elbow dislocation are rare. METHODS: From 2007 to 2013, we identified a group of 12 children who presented to our institution with a concomitant LCF and an elbow dislocation. This subset of fractures (group 1), all of which were managed surgically, is the subject of the present report. Their outcome was compared with that of all LCFs that were treated surgically at our institution during the study period (group 2, n=179)...

Lateral humeral condyle fractures account for 17 % of the distal humeral condyle fractures. Displaced and/or rotated fractures require appropriate reduction and stabilisation. There are, however, a number of controversies in the surgical management of these patients. The aim of the present study was to review the results of patients with a displaced lateral humeral condyle fracture treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). We retrospectively reviewed children treated with ORIF of lateral humeral condyle fractures at a single institution over a period of 13 years...
