Experience with the McAtee olecranon device in olecranon fractures



Experience with the McAtee olecranon device in olecranon fractures



Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. American Volume 61(3): 385-388



Treatment of olecranon fractures by prolonged immobilization often results in limited elbow motion. With the use of a compression screw apparatus, anatomical reduction was obtainable, and only a short period of immobilization was needed. In a series of 11 fractures there were no non-unions and an average decrease in patient elbow range of motion of only 8 degrees.
