useful in detecting the location of an injury, co-existing pathologies and neurological diseases when a nerve lesion is suspected.

Treatment of radialnervepalsy can be either non-operative or operative.
-union, while post-operative infections and iatrogenic radialnervepalsy (iRNP) do naturally occur following surgical therapy.
As complication profiles are known to differ between conservative and surgical therapy, operative techniques, and implant types, but
Surgical treatment: open reduction and internal fixation with a plate
Surgical indications are summarized in Table 1 . Radialnervepalsy (RNP) in HSF is not an indication for surgery as it is associated with a high rate of spontaneous
Six of these fractures were complicated with radialnervepalsy. Four cases were open fractures. All reductions were achieved closely or through minimal open approaches. All fractures achieved consolidation with an average of 95 days. The six radial
recovery after six months after surgery is an indication for surgical treatment. 92 Successful removal of the cement causing radialnervepalsy has been previously reported. The risk of this injury is not correlated to prosthetic design.
varying among the six studies between 35% and 82%).
Complications reported in these seven studies included infection, ulnar nerve neuropathy (nine elbows), radialnervepalsy (five elbows), and need for additional surgery (for nerve release, grafting
), superficial radialnervepalsy (2.4%), infection (1.3%) and stiffness (1%) ( 46 , 60 ). As mentioned before, there is no significant difference in complication rate between the single-incision technique and double-incision technique; the use of the single
