Abstract

New techniques of internal fixation, postoperative rehabilitation, and emphasis on functional as well as radiographic outcome have refined the surgical treatment of complex fractures of the glenoid, humeral head, supracondylar and intracondylar humerus, olecranon, radial head, distal radius, and distal radioulnar joint over the past decade. Early stabilization and rehabilitation of these injuries leads to soft-tissue stabilization and facilitates the patient's ability to place the hand in three-dimensional space.
