Abstract

OBJECTIVE To review the efficacy of reconstruction plate combined with tension band wiring for treating proximal ulna and olecranon fractures. Between November 2004 and September 2009, 10 patients with proximal ulna and olecranon fractures were treated by reconstruction plate combined with tension band wiring. There were 6 males and 4 females with an average age of 45.3 years (range, 21-75 years). Five fractures were caused by traffic accident, 2 by falling from height, 2 by tumbling, and 1 by a machine strangulation. The locations were the left side and the right side in 5 cases respectively. One case was open fracture (Gustilo II) and the other 9 were closed fractures. Olecranon fractures included 4 cases of traverse fractures and 6 cases of comminuted fractures, and proximal ulna fractures included 6 cases of comminuted fractures and 4 cases of oblique fractures. The combined fractures included 6 radial head fractures, 4 coronoid process fractures, 2 proximal humerus fractures, and 3 scapula fractures; other injury included 1 elbow dislocation and 1 shoulder dislocation. Two patients had secondary operation; the other 8 patients received the primary operations and the time from injury to operation varied from 7 days to 20 da...Continue Reading
