Results of twenty five intra-articular fractures of the distal humerus, managed by early operative reduction and internal fixation through transolecranon approach are presented. The fractures were classified according to the system of Muller et al., (1979). Each case was followed upto two years and more. The factors leading to good result were early anatomical and internal fixation of the fracture and early elbow mobilisation. At a mean follow-up of two years, 12 cases had excellent results, nine had good, two had fair and two cases had poor result. No non union and hetrotopic ossification was observed. Non union at the olecranon osteotomy site was observed in three cases and superficial sepsis was observed in two cases.
