  46. 65. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures: Associated Injuries <ul><li>Nerve injury incidence is high, between 7 and 16 % (radial, median, and ulnar nerve) </li></ul><ul><li>Anterior interosseous nerve injury is most commonly injured nerve </li></ul><ul><li>In many cases, assessment of nerve integrity is limited , because children can not always cooperate with the exam </li></ul><ul><li>Carefully document pre-manipulation exam, as post-manipulation neurologic deficits can alter decision making </li></ul>
  47. 66. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures: Associated Injuries <ul><li>5% have associated distal radius fracture </li></ul><ul><li>Physical exam of distal forearm </li></ul><ul><li>Radiographs if needed </li></ul><ul><li>If displaced pin radius also </li></ul>
  48. 67. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures: Associated Injuries <ul><li>Vascular injuries are rare, but pulses should always be assessed before and after reduction </li></ul><ul><li>In the absence of a radial and/or ulnar pulse, the fingers may still be well-perfused, because of the excellent collateral circulation about the elbow </li></ul><ul><li>Doppler device can be used for assessment </li></ul>
  49. 68. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures: Associated Injuries <ul><li>Type 3 supracondylar fracture, with absent ulnar and radial pulses, but fingers had capillary refill less than 2 seconds. </li></ul><ul><li>The pink, pulseless extremity </li></ul>
  50. 69. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures: Complications <ul><li>Malunion –cubitus varus </li></ul><ul><li>Volkmann’s ischemia </li></ul><ul><li>Vascular injury </li></ul><ul><li>Loss of reduction </li></ul><ul><li>Loss of elbow motion </li></ul><ul><li>Pin track infection </li></ul><ul><li>Neurovascular injury with pin placement </li></ul>
  51. 70. Volkmann’s ischemia <ul><li>Diagnose / suspect by </li></ul><ul><li>Severe pain/symptom </li></ul><ul><li>Stretch Pain /sign </li></ul>
  52. 72. Myositis Ossificans
  53. 74. WHY TO PREFER K WIRE IN TYPE3# <ul><li>Type 3 # are intrinsically unstable </li></ul><ul><li>No periosteal hinge </li></ul><ul><li>Rotation of the distal fragment cant be controlled until elbow is hypreflexed </li></ul><ul><li># Tends to rotate in less flexion </li></ul>
  54. 75. <ul><li>4. In fresh cases with swollen elbow not possible to get hyper flexion i.e. More than 90 deg </li></ul><ul><li>5. If app cast after 2-3 days swelling decreases cast becomes loose again rotation is lost </li></ul>
  55. 76. Supracondylar Humerus Fractures- Flexion type <ul><li>Rare, only 2% </li></ul><ul><li>Distal fracture fragment anterior,flexed </li></ul><ul><li>Ulnar nerve injury -higher incidence </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce with extension </li></ul>
