Technique for stabilization of a humeral supracondylar fracture

Triangural construct

1. Examine the fracture. Usually, the distal segment is displaced medially and in recurvatus.  

2. Insert a pin in each of the fracture segments. The distal one is in the condyle, the proximal one in the metaphyseal 

3. Connect the distal pin to a rail by an aluminum clamp. 

4. Reduce the fracture and stabilize it by connecting the proximal pin to a second rail. Connect the two rails 

5. Complete the fracture stabilization as requested. Take care to avoid the unsafe area of the radial nerve. 

6. Complete the triangular frame construct by connecting the most proximal and the condylar pins by a carbon bar.
