most frequently injured major nerve in the upper limb. Its close bony proximity makes it vulnerable to fractures of the humeral shaft and around the elbow. Injuries can be divided into high, complete radialnerveinjuries and low, posterior interosseous
did not find any other significant differences regarding infection, nonunion, radialnerveinjury or implant failure.
Surgical treatment: external fixation
External fixation remains an option in rare cases such as polytrauma
increases the risk of radialnerveinjury and stiffness. The bilaterotricipital posterior approach (Alonso-Llames approach) was initially described at our institution to treat supracondylar fractures.
However, currently it is not widely used because
) and 3 studies ( 61 ), respectively.
Additionally, for MIPO vs ORIF, a five-fold increased risk for intraoperative radialnerveinjury was found, corroborating the results published by Zhao et al. in a network meta-analysis involving two RCTs ( 62
specific problem is nerve injuries in combination with closed, but comminuted and dislocated, fractures.
In most of the cases with a mid-shaft humerus fracture and a concomitant radialnerveinjury, complete functional recovery of the nerve is seen
could lead to the thermal injury of the radial nerve due to the cement polymerization. Levy et al described a case of radialnerveinjury after RSA revision. 88 Most commonly, cement extravasation occurs due to cortical perforation or fracture. Its
