Forearm Fracture Management

Forearm fractures can occur in several areas of the arm, including the wrist, the middle of the forearm and near the elbow. When the forearm is fractured, the broken pieces of bone need to reduced into the correct position and fixated in order to mobilise the arm without displacing the fracture. In some cases, surgery may be required, in which case, an open reduction and internal fixation procedure is most likely to be recommended. Plates and screws are most commonly used and in children I mostly use titanium elastic nails if required.
