Functional outcome of closed reduction of supracondylar humerus fracture with Cross Kirschner Wire in children

Mohammed Bagir Al-Sharaa, Mohammed Shihab Al-Edanni.

Abstract
Objective: To evaluate the functional outcome of percutaneous cross two K wires fixation for Gartland types II and III fractures of humerus.
Methodology: This prospective study included 80 patients with supracondylar humeral fracture, who underwent closed reduction and fixation by two crossed Kirschner wires. We included children with age <15 years with closed fractures with Gartland types II and III, while the patient with vascular injury, open, irreducible fractures were excluded. The patients were following up for 6 months and assessed functionally by Flynn’s criteria.
Results: The mean age of patients was 8.1 years. Trauma while child playing was the main mechanism of injury in 43(59.8%) children and 46(57.5%) fractures were of the type Gartland type III. Union was achieved between 6-8 weeks in all children. The functional outcome showed that 40(50%) patients had excellent, 24(30%) good, 16(20%) fair, and none had a poor result as per Flyn’s Criteria.
Conclusion: Percutaneous Kirshner wires fixation results in good functional outcome, short hospital stays and minimal complications.

Key words: Closed, percutaneous reduction, suprcondylar humerus fracture, and Kirschner wire.
