- Brief summaryFractures of the radial head are commonly classified according to the classification by Mason1 as modified by Broberg and Morrey. Nondisplaced or minimally displaced fractures are classified as Mason type 1 and are usually treated nonoperatively. Fractures with a gap of more than 2 mm or fractures that comprise more than 1/3 of the articular surface are defined as Mason type 2 fractures. Mason type 3 fractures are severely comminuted radial head fractures and are most commonly treated operatively. For displaced, isolated partial articular fractures (Mason type 2), the choice of treatment is subject to discussion, partially due to the absence of level 1 evidence. Previously, these fractures were treated nonoperatively; if treatment failed, radial head excision would be performed. Nowadays, the tendency lies towards open reduction and internal fixation of isolated displaced partial articular radial head fractures. In this multicenter prospective randomized trial, we will compare ORIF by means of screw fixation vs. nonoperative management in the treatment of Mason type two fractures of the radial head. The primary objective of this study is functional outcome measured by the Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) Score in adult patients after one year. Secondary outcomes are Mayo Elbow Performance Index (MEPI) and Oxford Elbow Score (OES) as well as the level of pain measured by means of a Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Range of Motion (ROM), flexion arc and rotational arc. Complications such as arthrosis, subsequent or revision surgery, neurovascular compromise and infections will be recorded.
