Traditionally this fracture is treated by various methods such as POP applications, skin traction, overhead skeletal traction, closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation
and open reduction with internal fixation8.
(7) Immobilization of the involved extremity after closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation
with above elbow, plaster slab immobilization with arm to chest strapping gives additional rotational stability at the fracture site and prevent redisplacement.
Displaced Supracondylar fractures of the Humerus in children, treated by Closed Reduction and percutaneous pin fixation
. Ann Abbasi Shaheed Hosp Karachi Med Dent Coll.
The distal radius fracture was managed by closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation
But many methods have been proposed for the treatment of displaced supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children, such as Closed Reduction and Plaster of Paris slab application, Skin Traction, Overhead skeletal traction, Open reduction and Internal fixation and Closed Reduction and Percutaneous Pin Fixation
DISCUSSION: This present study was instituted to analyze the outcome of closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation
for tongue-type calcaneal fractures.
