Strict supervision may help manage pink, pulseless supracondylar fractures in children

Orthopaedics Today Europe, August 2017

With strict supervision, perfused, pulseless supracondylar fractures can be successfully managed without surgical revascularization and result in long-term positive outcomes when patients reach adulthood, according to a study presented as part of the Free Papers Award Session for Trauma at the 18th EFORT Annual Congress in Vienna.

“This was a retrospective study in which 14 children with a perfused, pulseless supracondylar humeral fracture were evaluated in adulthood,” Rafael Carbonell Escobar, MD, told Orthopaedics Today Europe. “The aim of the study was to investigate the long-term functional results of a pink pulseless supracondylar fracture managed conservatively in childhood.”
