Transcript

  • 1. Prepared by: Dr. Mostafa Azab Lecturer of Orthopedic Surgery Cairo University
  • 2. Supracondylar Fracture of the Humerus Is a fracture, usually of the just abovehumerusdistal the , although it mayepicondyles occur elsewhere. While relatively rare in adults it is one of the most common fractures to occur in children and is often associated with the development of serious complications.
  • 3. Classification: Flexion Type:20%Extension Type:80%
  • 4. TYPES: There are three types based on the degree of separationof the fractured fragments: 1-Type I: undisplaced or minimally displaced fractures. 2-Type II: partially displaced. 3-Type III: fully displaced.
  • 5. Epidemiology 1-This is the most common elbow fracture in children. 2-About 60% of fractures in children. 3-It is most common in children <10. 4- Peak incidence is between the ages of 5-8 years of age. 5-Primarily in children who are around age 7 years.
  • 6. Presentation: The child presents with history of a falling on an outstretched hand . Followed by pain, swelling and inability to move the affected elbow. On examination: Unusual prominence of olecranon process but because it is a supracondylar fracture, the three bony point relationship is maintained, as in a normal elbow.
  • 7. Complications: 1- Brachial Artery Injury 2- Nerve Injuries 3-Volkmann’s Ischaemic contracture 4-Myositis ossificans 5-Mal-union(Cubitus Varus)
  • 8. Cubitus Varus
  • 9. Treatment
  • 10. Treatment: Closed Reduction& percutaneus Fixation
  • 11. Lateral Humeral Condyle Fractures Lateral condyle fractures are common and their outcomes have historically been worse than supracondylar fractures articular nature, and often, missed diagnosis lead to an unacceptably high incidence of malunion and nonunion.
  • 12. Epidemiology & Types: 6 Years old is the commonest age
  • 13. Classification: Type I: SH Type IV TypeII: SH TypeII
  • 14. According to Displacement: Classification based on fracture displacement: Type 1: displacement <2mm, indicating intact cartilaginous hinge Type 2: displacement 2- 4mm, displaced joint surface Type 3: displacement >4mm, joint displaced and rotated
  • 15. Diagnosis: Physical exam: Exam may lack the obvious deformity often seen with supracondylar fractures. Swelling and tenderness are usually limited to the lateral side. Imaging: Radiographs: If the lateral condyle and capitellum have not ossified then radiographic findings can be subtle. Contra-lateral radiographs are very important. MRI and arthrograms can be helpful as well best judge if intra-articular incongruity.
  • 16. X-Rays
  • 17. Treatment Nonoperative long arm casting: Indications : Only indicated if < 2 mm of displacement, which indicates the cartilaginous hinge is most likely intact. Technique follow patient very closely (every 4-5 days) Operative CRPP: Indications: closed reduction achieves adequate reduction with no evidence of intra-articular incongruity Technique. Divergent pin configuration most stable open reduction and percutaneous pinning Indications: if > 2mm of displacement any joint incongruity Technique: Kocher lateral approach used avoid dissection of posterior aspect of lateral condyle (source of vascularization) intraoperative arthrograms are valuable to delineate the fracture and ensure anatomic reduction
  • 18. Complications 1-Lateral overgrowth bump 2-AVN posterior dissection can result in lateral condyle osteonecrosis 3-Nonunion/malunion : caused from delay in diagnosis and improper treatment may result in cubitus valgus and tardy ulnar nerve palsy
  • 19. Cubitus Valgus
  • 20. Pulled Elbow(Nursemaid’s Elbow)  Age: 1 to 4 yrs  Elbow is pronated and flexed  Painful movements

  • 23. Distal Radial Injuries In Adults In Children
  • 24. Salter Harris Classification I – S = Slip (separated or straight across). Fracture of the cartilage of the physis (growth plate) II – A = Above. The fracture lies above the physis, or Away from the joint. III – L = Lower. The fracture is below the physis in the epiphysis. IV – T = Through. The fracture is through the metaphysis, physis, and epiphysis. V – R = Rammed (crushed). The physis has been crushed.
  • 25. X-Rays
  • 26. Complications: Growth Arrest & Deformity(Madlung Def.)
  • 27. Principles of Treatment Anatomical Reduction Fixation by non-threaded wires Early mobilization
  • 28. Anatomical Features
  • 29. Colle’s Fracture Extra-articular fracture of the cancellous bone of the distal end of the Radius Displacement: 1-Shortening 2-Radial Deviation 3- Dorsal Angulation
  • 30. Displacement
  • 31. Mechanism of Injury Fall on the outstretched hand
  • 32. Classification Type I: extra articular, undisplaced Type II: extra articular, displaced Type III intra articular, undisplaced Type IV: intra articular, displaced
