Forearm Fractures

By 22 July 2011February 20th, 2024No Comments

The forearm consists of an articulation between the radius and ulna which effectively extends from the elbow to the wrist. Any fractures along this length, forearm fractures, are managed as fractures involving a joint and therefore require accurate reduction and internal fixation, unless they remain undisplaced with plaster cast and/or splint treatment. Surgical internal fixation is the rule in adult patients with Forearm fractures. While forearm fractures in children are more often managed with manipulation and cast application.
