To evaluate nerve high-resolution ultrasonography (HRUS) as diagnostic tool in children with supracondylar humeral fractures (SHF)-related peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs), we selected at least one illustrative case for each upper limb nerve usually involved in SHF (i.e. median, radial and ulnar nerve), in which HRUS evaluation added a useful contribution in diagnostic and therapeutic choices. We selected four patients (3 males, 1 female, aged between 7 and 12 years). Involved nerves were median (2), radial (1) and ulnar (1). HRUS results can actively modify the management of children with SHF-related PNIs, especially when combined with clinical and EDX. HRUS should be used routinely in evaluation of children with SHF-related PNIs.

Abstract

To evaluate nerve high-resolution ultrasonography (HRUS) as diagnostic tool in children with supracondylar humeral fractures (SHF)-related peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs), we selected at least one illustrative case for each upper limb nerve usually involved in SHF (i.e. median, radial and ulnar nerve), in which HRUS evaluation added a useful contribution in diagnostic and therapeutic choices. We selected four patients (3 males, 1 female, aged between 7 and 12 years). Involved nerves were median (2), radial (1) and ulnar (1). HRUS results can actively modify the management of children with SHF-related PNIs, especially when combined with clinical and EDX. HRUS should be used routinely in evaluation of children with SHF-related PNIs.
