Olecranon fractures account for approximately 10% of upper extremity fractures and 95% of them require surgical fixation. Most of the clinical, retrospective and biomechanical studies have supported plate fixation over other surgical fixation techniques since plates have demonstrated low incidence of reoperation, high fixation stability and resumption of activities of daily living (ADL) earlier. Thus far, biomechanical studies have been helpful in evaluating and comparing different plate fixation constructs based on fracture stability.
