Abstract


Coronoid process plays a critical role in ulnohumeral stability.,13 Coronoid process fractures are rare, and usually occur from avulsion by the brachialis muscle or may be part of a complex injury pattern associated with elbow dislocation.,46 Surgical treatment options described includes suture lasso, suture anchors, lag screws, and plating all of which have various merits and demerits.,1,7,8 We describe a minimal anterior incision & percutaneous K-wires to address coronoid process fractures which allowed anatomic reduction and stable internal fixation.
