Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A rare elbow fracture pattern involving the radial neck, olecranon, and medial epicondyle is described in a pediatric patient. Medial and lateral fixation was necessary to control the three planes of instability. Commonly, radial neck fractures with an associated elbow injury (olecranon or medial epicondyle) are stable with lateral fixation alone.
