oa South African Medical Journal - Supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children
1. The procedure in the handling of supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children is discussed, and the technique in the reduction of these fractures is descriptionbed. 2. Emphasis is laid on the first manoeuvre of the reduction. It is more important to know where the proximal fragment is than to rely on the textbook emphasis on the distal fragment. 3. Criticisms are levelled at Watson-Jones' insistence on the correction of the lateral displacement after the correction of the posterior displacement, and at his recommendation of repeated manipulations
