The article presents case studies of children with anterior olecranon fracture-dislocations of the elbow. The patients had sustained the injuries after a motor vehicle collision and a bicycle accident. The patients' condition have improved after treated with open reduction and plate-and-screw fixation

    Background: Despite the good results that are usually reported after fixation at the sites of olecranon fractures and osteotomies, problems such as loss of fixation, nonunion, and the need for revision surgery are still encountered. Various types of fixation have been recommended, but few have...
