Supracondylar fractures are the result of a fall on outstretched hand in more than 70% of cases, and more common in the non-dominant arm. Baumanís angle is used to determine the degree of displacement and angulation, and the quality of fracture reduction. Carrying angle is the clinical parameter of varus-valgus angulation with elbow fully extended and forearm completely supinated. Patients and methods: The study was a retrospective-prospective and there were analyzed children under 14 years of age with supracondylar humerus fracture. They were analyzed by X-ray anteroposterior view of injured elbow, made ‚Äč‚Äčbefore and after the surgery, with measuring Baumanís angle. Clinical examination was performed after completing physical therapy, when was measured carrying angle of the injured and healthy elbow using a goniometer. Results and discussion: The results showed that there is a negative correlation Bauman and carrying angle of injured elbow (r=-0.543, p
