Abstract

Isolated fracture of the capitulum humeri is relatively uncommon, but often troublesome. It occurs mainly in children and young adults. The usual cause is a fall on the forearm. There are few reports on the management of this fracture in the contemporary literature. Some authors recommended open reduction and internal fixation of the large capitular fragment, while others advocate excising it. Two cases with successful operative treatment are reported.
