An evaluation of the results of primary open reduction and kirschner wire fixation in 30 displaced supracondylar fractures of humerus in children is presented. All the operated cases were followed up for 6-18 months. The results were graded as excellent, good and unsatisfactory. Out of the 30 operated cases 28 had excellent and 2 had good result. None of the cases were graded as unsatisfactory. The high rate of excellent results was mainly due to minimal tissue trauma, immobilization of the elbow at 20 degree of flexion and early active mobilization. The factors responsible for the failure of closed reduction were long medical spike, rotational displacement, comminuted fracture and interlocking of fragments
