Abstract

Based on cadaveric experiments, peroperative observations and clinical study, an exact mechanism is described by which full pronation of the forearm prevents cubitus varus deformity in supracondylar fractures of the humerus. The significance of the position of the upper limb in relation to the chest is described, and it has been demonstrated that even the posterolaterally displaced supracondylar fractures are better reduced and maintained in pronation. © 1991.
