Abstract

The authors report a technique of the anterior cubital approach that is an exposure for displaced pediatric supracondylar fractures. Reduction is very safe and easy with this approach. Anatomical structures that hinder reduction such as the brachialis muscle or joint capsule and neurovascular tissues can be identified easily. This technique has not been a popular form of treatment in many countries, particularly in the United States.
