Closed Reduction and Percutaneous Pinning of Supracondylar Humerus Fracture
The patient underwent anesthesia per the anesthesia team. The patient was positioned supine with the shoulder at the edge of the table and the involved extremity resting on the tube of the image intensifier. The upper extremity was prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion.
With the elbow extended, gentle longitudinal traction was applied to the supinated forearm, with counter traction applied to the upper part of the arm by my assistant. The frontal plane displacement and the rotation were corrected while maintaining the longitudinal traction. The elbow was flexed to 120° and the forearm pronated. Fluoroscopy confirmed the reduction on the lateral view and Jones view.
