Figure 3: Concurrent coronal plane fragment fixation using cerclage wiring for olecranon fractures (Method 2) in a 25-year-old man who slipped (Case 4). (a) Mayo type IIB olecranon fractures with coronal plane fragment. (b and c) Coronal plane fragment was reduced by two cerclage wires (asterisks) and then fixed by a cortical/locking screw (arrowhead) during plating of the olecranon. Fixation was maintained until the final followup at 26 months without any displacement and was properly united in lateral and anteroposterior simple radiographs, respectively
