Abstract
PURPOSE
To report the clinical results of two cases of coronoid process fractures that were treated with volar plating through a medial approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two fractures of the coronoid process that needed to be fixed were managed with open reduction and internal fixation through a medial approach using 2.4 mm locking compression plates (Compact Hand set(R), Synthes, Switzerland). The patients were followed up for 14 months and 17 months and were evaluated using the Mayo Elbow Performance Score (MEPS).
RESULTS
The MEPS was 95 for Case 1 and 100 for Case 2. Active elbow joint motions were 5degrees-120degrees (Case 1) and 0degrees-130degrees(Case 2). Supination and pronation fully recovered.
CONCLUSION
Satisfactory results can be obtained in cases of coronoid process fractures because volar plating through a medial approach allows sound fixation and early mobilization of the elbow joint.
Key Words: Coronoid process; Fracture; 2.4 mm locking compression plate; Volar plating
