Distal Humerus Fracture
The distal humerus is the end of the upper arm bone (the humerus) that forms the upper part of the elbow. Three bones come together at the elbow to form the elbow joint. A distal humerus fracture is a type of elbow fracture or break. Symptoms consist of swelling, bruising, pain or tenderness to the touch, stiffness, and/or the feeling of instability (“my elbow feels like it wants to pop out”).
