Dr. Kushwanth, Dr. Venkatachalam

Abstract: Radial neck fractures in children are a relatively common traumatic injury that usually affects the radial neck (metaphysis) in children 9-10 years of age.treatment depends on the degree of angulation and is surgical if angulation remains greater than 30 degrees after closed reduction is attempted.median age is 9-10 years.no difference in incidence between sexes.5-10% of all pediatric elbow fractures and 1% of pediatric fractures overall.In our study we reduce open reduction and temporary internal fixation of radial neck in childrens which gives better functional and radiological outcome
