In a series of cases of distal humerus fractures, only 5 cases were identified with this type of fracture. In the treatment of this type of fracture the following methods were taken into consideration: open reduction and internal fixation with Herbert screws in 3 cases; arthroplastic resection in one case and a conservatory treatment upon request in one distal humerus fracture - this latter case was subsequently excluded for failure to show up.
Given the very small number of cases recorded, no solid conclusions could be drawn from the results obtained.
However, the data support the following assertions: the arthroplastic resection remains a solution to consider when the possibilities of fixation are out of the question, the great inconvenient of this procedure being the residual instability; the internal fixation with Herbert screws is the method of choice because the fixation with plate according to the AO recommendations is often impracticable Copyright of Acta Medica Transilvanica is the property of Acta Medica Transilvanica and its content may not be copied or emailed to multiple sites or posted to a listserv without the copyright holder's express written permission.
