From 2003 through 2009 we treated 35 patients who suffered from an isolated capitellum humerus fracture whom we treated with osteosynthesis. Patients who presented with concomitant fractures were not included. Thirty-four patients were categorized as Type I (Hahn-Steinthal) while one patient was Type IV (McKee). We describe the mechanism of injury and compared our results with works available in the literature. The average age of our patients was 38.6 years which was much younger than many articles about this type of injury found in the literature. The ratio of women to men in our study was 20:15. The surgical treatment was performed with various methods including: Kirschner wires, AO screws, Herbert screws and TwinFix screws.We discuss type of injury, days after injury operative treatment is performed, type of osteosynthesis used, the surgical approaches used for our treatment of capitellum humeri fractures, possible complications and our postoperative treatment. Results at the conclusion of treatment were excellent. Range of motion, shown in detail for each patient, was measured preoperatively, 1 month and 3 months postoperatively. We concluded that the major factors in successful treatment are how quickly the surgical treatment is performed after injury and early postoperative rehabilitation.
