Open Reduction for Adolescents
We are unable to recommend for or against open reduction and stable fixation for adolescent patients with supracondylar fractures of the humerus.
We addressed this topic because adolescent patients have different fracture patterns and mechanisms of injury. We addressed the role of stable fixation because adolescents have the potential for slower healing than juveniles. There were no data available reporting on outcomes of interest in adolescent patients.
