AbstractAlthough the incidence of these fractures generally has been reported to be higher in boys, more recent reports indicate that the frequencies of supracondylar humeral fractures in girls and boys seem to be equalizing, and some series actually have reported higher rates in girls. As soon as the patient was admitted, a detailed history was taken and a meticulous Examination of the patient was done. The required information was recorded in the proforma prepared. The patients radiograph was taken in antero-posterior and lateral views. The diagnosis was established by clinical and radiological examination. Out of 30 extension type, 15 patients had posteriomedial displacement while 10 patients had posteriolateral displacement. 5 patient were of Type II Gartland classification with posterior displacement. We encountered loss of pulse in one patient which recovered as soon as fracture was reduced. Median and radial Nerve injury in one patient each was encountered out of 30 patients which spontaneously recovered by 4-6 weeks’ time.
