Abstract

Minifragment implants provide several advantages for the stabilization of distal humerus fractures. Compared with small fragment implants, minifragment implants may provide enhanced fracture fixation because a greater number of screws can be placed into the distal fragments. In addition, minifragment plates are easier to contour and less prominent. We describe the surgical technique of minifragment fixation.
