Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics , 05/16/2012
Leonidou A et al. – According to the recorded experience, conservative management of Monteggia fractures, when indicated, results in excellent outcomes. In cases where emergency MUA fails to achieve or maintain reduction, the choice of open reduction and internal fixation has also demonstrated good results. Early diagnosis and management are of paramount importance as mismanaged cases demonstrate less satisfactory results.
