The study was aimed to see the functional status of elbow after fixation with pre bend K- wire in Mason type II Radial head fractures. We have studied eight patients (3 females and 5 males) with Mason type II isolated radial head fractures aged between 15 and 65 years (average 39 years) who underwent open reduction and internal fixation with the pre bend K-wires. This method is cost effective and takes lesser time. Even surgeons with minimal experience can perform this procedure.
