Author(s): Dr. P Bala Krishna Kanth and Dr. Mohammed Abdul Bari
Abstract: This study has been done to evaluate the functional results and complications following surgical fixation by extra articular distal humerus locking compression plate for closed distal third shaft of humerus fractures in adults, In this study 20 patients of fresh fractures of distal third shaft of humerus treated surgically by internal fixation with extra articular distal locking compression plate studied between January 2015 to march 2016 in Mamta general and super specialty hospital, Khammam. Surgeries were performed within 2-3 days average. All cases treated by open reduction and internal fixation with extraarticular distal locking compression plate. All the fractures united with a union rate of 90%. Radiological union was possible in 13.9 weeks, there were two case of radial nerve neuropraxia and one patient develops superficial infection. Functional outcome as per mayo elbow performance score was excellent in 18 cases and good in 2 cases.
