The classifications for adult both bone forearm fractures apply descriptive terms about the location of the fracture in bone, whether one or both bones are fractured, the degrees of comminution, displacement ,angulation and whether the fracture is open or closed.

- Pediatric Both Bone Fractures
- Deforming Forces:
- Discussion of Blount Fractures:
- Implants for Fractures of the Radius and Ulna:
- Plating Techniques:
- Indications for Operative Treatment:
- all displaced, unstable fractures of the radius and ulna in adults;
- radial shaft fractures: all displaced fractures of the radius with greater than...
- radial head fracture plus dislocation of distal RU joint (& interosseous membrane disruption);
- mechanism: fall from height;
- in this type of frx, radius will also migrate proximally if radial head is excised;
- if injury is not found when it is acute, pt may develop severe wrist pain
- fracture of radial shaft (between middle and distal 1/3's) & dislocation of distal radioulnar joint;
- usually the dislocation is dorsal, but in some cases can be palmar;
- fracture is almost always located just above proximal border of...
Giovanni Monteggia (1814) first described fracture of proximal 1/3 of ulna in association with anterior dislocation of radial head;
- hence dislocation of radial head with fracture of proximal 1/3 of ulna is known as Monteggia's deformity.
- proposed mechanisms include...
