Abstract

Complex fractures of the olecranon have always been a difficult condition for treatment. Successful reconstruction depends on restoration of the anatomic contributors to stability. The purpose of this study was to define the proximal ulna anatomy in detail with respect to fracture fixation and arthroscopy.
