AbstractBackground: In 90% of proximal radial fractures, the fracture line comprises of radial neck or physis.The present study was conducted to assess cases of radial neck fracture.
Materials & Methods: 85 patients of radial neck fracture of both genders were enrolled.Radiographic assessment included standard radiographs (antero-posterior and lateral view). Additional radiocapitellar views or computer tomography (CT) scans were performed Radiologic scoring was performed according to Johnston’s modification of the Mason classification.
Results: Out of 85 patients, males were 45 and females were 40. Type I was seen in 64, type II in 15, type III in 4 and type IV in 2 patients. Radial head angulation found to be type IV a in 35 and type IV b in 50 cases. Left side was involved in 42 and right side in 43 cases. Associated injuries were undisplaced lateralcondyle fracture in 4 cases and displaced lateralcondyle fracture in 1 case.
Conclusion: Results of the study showed thatMason type I was seen in maximum cases.
