Ulnar nerve stability evaluation of 4 children with iatrogenic ulnar nerve palsy after closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of supracondylar humeral fracture

Supracondylar fractures of children are still big clinical challenge. Altrough most of them are treated conservatively, displaced ones need to be reduced and fi xed in operative room, mostly by crossed percutaneus pinning. This case report 4 patients with iatrogenic ulnar nerve palsy after closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. Aim of this study is to evaluate if ulnar nerve is stable in […]
