Muhammed Koroglu, Okan Aslanturk, Emre Ergen, Ozgur Yilmaz, Kadir Ertem


Neurological problems following supracondylar fractures are clinically challenging problem. Neurological damage has been reported about 10-20% of pediatric supracondyler fractures. Nerve injury caused by primarily directly damage of the fracture fragments, excessive stretching,entrapment of nerve in fracture line, or iatrogenically. Radial nerve injury is at least often seen by rate of %21 after supracondylar humerus fractures. Neural injuries of pediatric patients have mostly recover spontaneously. But in case of nerve defect; nerve grafting is needed for repair.

Key words: Radial nerve, supracondylar humerus fracture, sural nerve graft
