Supracondylar region in children is weaker in children as the part is growing.

Supracondylar fractures are very common childhood injuries. Most of the fractures can be treated by conservative means. Severely displaced fractures are treated by closed reduction and percutaneous pinning.

Supracondylar factures are very common fractures of children. Most of these are extension type injuries where the distal fragment of the fracture goes into extension as compared to proximal part. This type of injury constitutes about 95% of the injury. Other 5% is type where the distal fragment goes into flexion.

Following xrays are of a seven year old male child who suffered flexion type of supracondylar injury to his right humerus

These fractures are reduced and held in position of elbow extension. Neurovascular deficit as usual should be carefully examined.
