a 83 year old man who presented a conminuted supraintercondylear fracture of the humerus. b Wound dehiscence that required outpatient nursing cures every 48 h until enough bone callus was observed in most part of the ulna after 10 weeks; the wound healed well after the screw removal. c X-ray at 10 weeks after the first surgery. Osteosynthesis of the fracture with two plates and a 6.5 mm thick and 115 mm long screw with washer for the olecranon osteotomy. Enough bone callus was observed in most part of the ulna, considering the bone union stable to remove the screw
