Distal Humerus Fracture

Distal Humerus Fracture Treatment and Surgery in Wayne & Paramus, NJ

Fracture of the humerus bone down near the elbow.

There are many different types of fractures that can occur in and around the elbow joint. The severity and location of the fracture will determine the course of treatment. Distal humerus fractures account for about 2 percent of all fractures in adults. They present with pain and swelling in and around the elbow joint. Definitive diagnosis is made with x-rays. Sometimes a CT scan may be done for a more detailed picture of the fracture. Treatment depends on the level of displacement, fracture location and involvement of neurovascular structures. Stable nondisplaced fractures may be treated with splinting, but more commonly distal humerus fractures are displaced and require open reduction and internal fixation.
