Description: Forearm rotation and stability depend on the normal anatomic relationships about the radioulnar joints (distal and proximal), the interosseous membrane, and the shape of the forearm bones. Injuries to any of these structures result in pain, decreased strength, limited range of motion, and loss of forearm function. This article discusses the problems and their management options concerning the distal radioulnar joint based on the current literature.
