Pediatric distal humerus 13-E/3.1 Open reduction;K-wire fixation

Overview

Supine position i

The most commonly used patient position is supine with the arm either on an arm table, or directly on the draped C-arm. This position can be used for the majority of pediatric fractures of the distal humerus, both supracondylar and articular.

Other positions can be used for specific fractures (eg, complex intraarticular fractures), or for personal preference.
