Proximal forearm Ulna, extraarticular, simple - Lag screw and protection plate

Overview

Posterolateral approach i

A straight midline incision provides direct subcutaneous access to the proximal olecranon. Skin and subcutaneous flaps can be developed to access both medial and lateral approaches described below. Laterally, the midline incision can be developed submuscularly as the Boyd approach, gaining exposure for ulnar shaft and radial head fractures.
