Triceps Tendon Reattachment Using Mini Plates and Screws After Failure of Olecranon Avulsion Fracture Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone: A Case Report.

This is a case report of an 85-year-old woman with osteopenia who underwent olecranon avulsion fracture repair with supplemental triceps tendon repair following a fall on an outstretched arm. The initial procedure failed due to osteoporotic bone quality and an atraumatic disruption of the olecranon fracture fixation. The patient subsequently underwent further surgical intervention with an olecranon avulsion fracture excision and a novel triceps tendon repair technique using plate augmentation and fiber tape. Surgeons may consider this novel approach as an initial treatment for elderly patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis undergoing olecranon avulsion fracture fixation, to prevent the failure and consequent revision surgery.
