To determine frequency of union with orthogonal double locking plate in distal humeral fracture.
Objectives: To determine frequency of union with orthogonal double locking plate in distal humeral fracture. Study Design: Descriptive, case series. Setting: Orthopedic department Punjab Medical College. Period: From April 2, 2017 to October, 2017. Material & Methods: 75 consecutive patients with distal humeral fractures were managed by open reduction of internal fixation with double locking plates in orthogonal configuration. Radiographic evaluation was done to see the callus formation after 12 weeks of treatment. Results: There were 54 (72%) males and 21 (28%) female patients having the average age 43.5±15.9 years. Union was seen in 71 (94.7%) patients. In 4 (5.3%) patients there was non-union. Conclusion: Anatomically pre-contoured distal humeral locking plates are useful in providing stable internal fixation for complex distal articular fractures, and hence allowing early rehabilitation.
