Özet

Humeral capitellum fractures comprise approximately 1% of all elbow fractures. In this study, we examined the clinical, radiographic, and functional outcomes following operative stabilization of Bryan and Morrey type IV fractures of the capitellum in adolescents. We applied headless cannulated screws in a posteroanterior direction without damaging the articular cartilage surface of the fractures.
