Abstract

Supracondylar humerus fractures are the most common elbow fractures in children. Displaced supracondylar humerus fractures that are associated with neurologic and/or vascular injuries should be treated with timely reduction via closed techniques. If closed reduction fails, reduction via open techniques is indicated. There is controversy about which surgical approach yields the best cosmetic and functional outcomes while minimizing postoperative complications. Open reduction, if indicated, has been reported to yield good outcomes in patients in whom closed reduction fails.
