Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to show our experience in cases of dislocated extension type - supracondylar humeral fractures and evaluate the results of their treatment in the period from 2000 to 2010 with a follow up of a maximum six months.

Material and Methods: A retrospective analysis of the clinical cases for the period 2000 - 2010 was done. Children from 4 to 14 years of age with supracondylar fractures of the humerus - extension type are included. The total number of patients treated at the Clinic for Pediatric Surgery was 230.

Results: The results of the treatment were evaluated after the last control examination six months later. We noticed postoperative neurological damage in 10 cases (4.85%). In 14 patients (6.8%) we noticed long term deformities such as cubitus varus or cubitus valgus. Infection at the entering place of the needles occurred in 4 patients (1.94%), which did not indicate premature extraction of the needles and conversion of the treatment.

Conclusion: As a conclusion, we can stress that our outcomes in treatment of dislocated suparacondylar fractures of the humerus in children meet the world standards.
