Abstract

Biepicondylar fracture of the humerus is very rare in adults. To date, there have been limited evidence of this injury in the English literature. We report a case of a 65-year-old female with a biepicondylar fracture of the left distal humerus without dislocation. Open reduction and internal fixation with K-wires, cannulated screw, and suture anchor were performed. We obtained stability of the elbow and a satisfactory functional outcome. Because this type of injury is associated with varus and valgus instability, operative reduction and fixation are essential in order to gain stability and early recovery of normal function.
