From: Monteggia type IV fracture in a child with radial head dislocation irreducible by closed means: a case report

Figure 3

Intra-operative screening images demonstrating the sequence of steps resulting in successful reduction of the fractures and radiocapitellar joint. (a) Closed reduction of ulna did not relocate radial head; (b) Proceeded onto reduction of radius with 2 mm titanium elastic nail but radiocapitellar joint remained dislocated; (c) Anatomic reduction of ulna with percutaneous 2 mm stainless steel wire also did not result in reduction; (d) After open reduction via a postero-lateral approach resulting in successful reduction.
