Distal Humerus Fractures eMedicine Orthopedics

The elbow joint coordinates movements of the upper extremity, facilitating the execution of activities of daily living in areas such as hygiene, dressing, and cooking. When the distal humerus is injured, elbow joint function can be impaired. The goal of open reduction and internal fixation is restoration of normal anatomy. Distal humerus fractures continue to provide challenging reconstructive problems for the orthopedic surgeon.
