The Monteggia lesion and ipsilateral supracondylar humerus and distal radius fractures

J Orthop Trauma. 1999 Jan;13(1):60-3. doi: 10.1097/00005131-199901000-00015.

Abstract

Ipsilateral elbow and forearm fractures are quite rare in children. We present a Monteggia lesion with ipsilateral supracondylar humerus fracture in a 13-year-old girl. Through early surgical management, a successful result was achieved. We believe that, to minimize any initial or subsequent complications in such fractures, early surgical management should be the first treatment choice.
