In this study, we present a novel method for performing dual plating of extra-articular fractures of the distal third of the humerus. Since 2006, we have treated 15 such fractures with dual plates from a single posterior midline incision. In the first part of the study, we provide the surgical protocol we have used in addressing these fractures. In the second part, the charts of these patients were reviewed retrospectively to examine their clinical and radiographic outcomes. Using this technique, we have achieved an excellent union rate without significant complications while allowing early and aggressive range of motion.
