Fractures of the supracondylar process of the humerus.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The supracondylar process of the humerus is a relatively rare but well-known anatomic variant that can be associated with other anomalies.

The supracondylar process has potential for fracture and important neurovascular sequelae.
