Hardware Complications and Reoperations Following Precontoured Plate Fixation of the Ol...
Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery; Bouchard C, Bornes TD et. al.

May 15th, 2022 - Several fixation techniques have been described to treat acute olecranon fractures. Plate fixation is often used due to its superior mechanical properties. The reported rates of reoperation from olecranon plate fixation have been quite heterogeneo...

Anatomic evaluation of the triceps tendon insertion at the proximal olecranon regarding...
Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy : SRA; Wegmann S, Rausch V et. al.

Mar 19th, 2022 - Olecranon fractures, especially with a small proximal fragment, remain a surgical challenge. Soft tissue irritation and affection of the triceps muscle bear a risk of complications. In order to find an area for a soft-tissue sparing placement of i...

Risk Factors for Loss of Reduction After Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Isolat...
Hand (New York, N.Y.); Contreras ES, Lynch DJ et. al.

Mar 11th, 2022 - We sought to determine whether any relevant patient, fracture, surgical, or postoperative characteristics are associated with loss of reduction after plate fixation of isolated olecranon fractures in adults. Patients who underwent open reduction a...

When Is an Isolated Olecranon Fracture Pathognomonic for Osteogenesis Imperfecta?
Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics; VanEenenaam DP, Houlihan N et. al.

Feb 25th, 2022 - Isolated fractures of the olecranon process of the ulna in pediatric patients with open physes are classically considered pathognomonic for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). The purpose of this study was to distinguish the clinical manifestations of i...

A novel all-suture tension band tape fixation technique for simple olecranon fractures ...
Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery; Ernstbrunner L, Rupasinghe HS et. al.

Feb 16th, 2022 - Simple transverse or short oblique olecranon fractures without articular comminution are classified as Mayo type-IIA fractures, and are typically treated with a tension band wire construct. Due to the high reoperation rates, frequently because of ...

Scandinavian Olecranon Research in the Elderly

Jun 1st, 2021 - This study is designed to study the difference between operative treatment, either with tension band wiring or plate fixation, and conservative treatment of traumatic, displaced olecranon fractures in elderly population in a non-inferiority study ...

Suture Fixation Versus Tension Band Wiring of Simple Displaced Olecranon Fractures

Dec 6th, 2019 - Background Olecranon fractures are frequent with an incidence of 11.5 per 100.000 people per year. Olecranon fractures are classified according to the Mayo classification in three groups. Type 1A and B are treated conservatively, while comminute f...

A Trial of Non-operative Versus Operative Management of Olecranon Fractures in the Elderly

Oct 6th, 2016 - Patients with undisplaced olecranon fractures can be treated non-operatively. The aims of treatment in displaced olecranon fractures are the restoration of function and stability to the elbow joint4. The technique employed should allow preservatio...

A Trial of Plate Fixation Versus Tension Band Wire for Olecranon Fractures

Oct 6th, 2016 - Background Proximal forearm fractures comprise approximately 5% of all fractures, whilst olecranon fractures account for almost 20% of fractures occurring around the elbow1. There is limited conclusive evidence regarding the epidemiology, optimal ...

Acute Shortening Versus Bridging Plate for Highly Comminuted Olecranon Fractures

Oct 27th, 2017 - Analysis ImageJ software was used to analyze the C-arm radiographs. Measurements were divided into 4 groups of joint surface loss caused by the resections: 0% to 20%, 20% to 40%, 40% to 60%, and >60%.

Intra-articular Olecranon Fracture Fixed with an Iso-Elastic Tension Band
RAjfer RA, Danoff JR et. al.

Dec 3rd, 2015 - Surgical technique using isoelastic tension band for treatment of olecranon fractures. To read the authors' full article click here.

Technique Using Isoelastic Tension Band for Treatment of Olecranon Fractures

Dec 3rd, 2015 - Various studies have addressed the clinical complaints and reoperation rates associated with retained metal implants after olecranon fixation. Traditional AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen) technique involves subcutaneous placement o.

Comparison of Outcomes and Costs of Tension-Band and Locking-Plate Osteosynthesis in Transverse Olecranon Fractures: A Matched-Cohort Study

Jul 7th, 2015 - Anteroposterior and lateral radiographs of the elbow were obtained at follow-up and were examined for maintenance/integrity of implants, radiographic union, and posttraumatic arthrosis. Arthrosis was graded using the Broberg and Morrey24 classific.
