No study examining pin constructs has adequately addressed pin size and its role in fracture fixation. Our goal was to review our experience with Wilkins-modified Gartland type-III pediatric supracondylar humerus fractures treated with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning to evaluate the effects of pin size within 2 different pin constructs on maintenance of reduction and on the risk of surgical complications.
