The authors report their experience in the treatment of 34 fractures of the lower end of the humerus treated surgically over the last 6 years. The fractures are divided into four types in assessing the functional results; open and closed; those involving and not involving the joint. Satisfactory clinical results were obtained in 22 of the 34 cases (64%). Complications were directly related either to the severity of the lesion (comminuted and open fractures) and/or inadequate surgical technique.
