Radial neck fractures comprises of less than 1% of all fractures in adults. They are more common in children than adults. Majority of cases require surgical management especially in adults. Surgically preferred management comprises of closed/open reduction and internal fixation using various types of plates/wires .We have performed Metaizeau technique in seven adults with successful treatment and functional outcome. This technique is very well described in children.
