In a 5-year period, 45 children were admitted to our hospital with supracondylar fractures of the humerus. Twenty-nine cases were followed postoperatively for an average of 29 months. In most of the cases, closed reduction was tried under general anesthesia. If satisfactory reduction and stability were obtained, the fracture was immobilized in a plaster with the elbow in an acute angle of flexion and the forearm in supination. If a stable reduction could not be obtained, the fractures were fixed with percutaneous K-wire pinning and a plaster with the elbow in a right angle. The end result was considerably better than previously reported results.
