Forearm fractures 1. Forearm 2. Anatomy • The radius and ulna have an important role in positioning the hand. The ulna has a stabilising role, while the radius is articulated in a way which allows it to roll over the ulna, moving the hand from supination (external rotation) to pronation (internal rotation) • The two bones of the forearm are the radius, laterally, and the ulna, medially. Distal humerus fractures can be treated by both non-surgical and surgical methods based on the intensity of the fracture. Non-surgical Treatment of Distal Humerus Fractures If the fracture has not caused displacement of the bone, then your doctor may apply a splint (a casting) and you may be required to wear a sling until complete healing and.
Arthroscopy is an option in patients with distal radius intra articular fractures to improve diagnostic accuracy for wrist ligament injuries, and CT is an option to improve diagnostic accuracy for patterns of intra-articular fractures. Strength of Recommendation: Limited. Although forearm fractures in kids account for up to 30% of all fractures, Monteggia fracture-dislocations constitute only about 1% of all pediatric forearm fractures. These injuries encompass a proximal one-third of the ulna (olecranon) fractures with an associated radial head dislocation.
This practical handbook covers the diagnosis and management of fractures in adults and children. Each chapter is organized as follows: Epidemiology, Anatomy, Mechanism of Injury, Clinical Evaluation, Radiologic Evaluation, Classification, treatment, Complications. Section 1 also covers Multiple Trauma, Gunshot Wounds, pathologic and periprosthetic fractures, and orthopedic analgesia. Fracture of Antebrachii.

ELIASON. Comprised exclusively of more than 20 clinical cases covering common fractures of and around the elbow, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians with the best real-world strategies to properly manage open and closed fractures, dislocations and nonunions of the distal humerus and proximal radius and ulna.

Fractures of the forearm can occur at different levels: near the wrist at the farthest (distal) end of the bone, in the middle of the forearm or. The humerus is the long bone of your upper arm.
It extends from your shoulder to your elbow, where it joins with the ulna and radius bones of your forearm. A humerus fracture Author: James Roland. For the purposes of this book, we have divided “elbow fractures” into those above the elbow (distal humerus—Chapter 8) and those below the elbow (proximal radius and ulna—this chapter).Although fractures of the proximal radius and Fractures of the humerus are less frequent than supracondylar fractures in young children, their prevalence increases with age as does severity of the fractures.
The radius is one of two long bones that make up the human antebrachium, the other bone being the ulna. The radius has three borders, three surfaces, and has a prismoid shape in which the base is broader than the anterior border.
The radius articulates proximally at the elbow with the capitulum of the humerus and the radial notch of the ulna. It articulates at its distal end with the ulna. Anatomy: The elbow joint is made up of three bones, the radius and ulna (forearm bones) and the humerus (upper arm bone).
Any of these three bones can be broken and most require surgery to regain any function of the elbow. These bones work in synergy with a complex set of ligaments and tendons to form the elbow “hinge” joint that allows for forearm rotation.
Most fractures of the radius and ulna heal without complication in a matter of weeks. However, some fractures can result in longer-term effects, dependent on the severity of the injury. When the radius and ulna are broken, a number of nearby structures can also be injured.
Per the Coder's Desk Reference, the CPT lay description for CPT states, "When both the radius and ulna are fractured, the physician exposes and reduces both fractures prior to fixation.
Separate incisions along the forearm may be needed to expose the fracture. Inonly one fracture is stabilized, requiring only one incision.

Nonunion of the proximal ulna and olecranon has been reported to occur in 5% of olecranon fractures and represent approximately 5% of all nonunions.
6,7,18 At the Mayo Clinic in a year period (–) there were only two nonunions among olecranon fractures (1%). 46 These figures are roughly comparable to the rate of nonunion after. Coronoid fractures are associated with elbow dislocation, because the distal humerus can shear the coronoid process if the ulna is dislocated posteriorly.
Fractures of the olecranon can occur with FOOSH mechanisms or direct trauma. 44 The fracture is usually transverse (Figures and ). Your humerus is classified as a long bone. Other types of long bones include the radius and ulna in your forearm and the femur in your upper leg.; Speaking of long, the humerus.

Fractures of the. Shaft of Radius and Ulna By. sajid Manzoor PG-trainee Orthopedics LGH Lahore Fractures of the Shaft of Radius and Ulna Regard as articular fractures Present specific problems in addition to those common to other long bone shaft fractures.
slight deviation in spatial orientation will significantly decrease forearm rotational amplitude and thus impair hand position and 5/5(1). Long arm posterior splints are commonly used for fractures to the humerus, radius, ulna, and olecranon process near the elbow joint.
A double sugar-tong splint consists of two U-shaped splints. The ulna is a long bone found in the forearm that stretches from the elbow to the smallest finger, and when in anatomical position, is found on the medial side of the forearm. It runs parallel to the radius, the other long bone in the ulna is usually slightly longer than the radius, but the radius is thicker.
Therefore the radius is considered to be the larger of the two. Ipsilateral fractures of the humerus and forearm are uncommon injuries in children. The incidence of compartment syndrome in association with these fractures is controversial. The authors reviewed consecutive children admitted to the hospital with upper extremity long bone fractures during a.
Functional Fracture Bracing: Tibia, Humerus, and Ulna: Medicine & Health Science Books @. We treated nineteen patients with concomitant ipsilateral fractures of the humerus and forearm resulting in a so-called floating elbow. The injuries that were treated without open reduction and internal fixation had a high incidence of non-union of the humerus.
This has led us to prefer open reducti .There are two bones in the forearm – radius and the one or both the bones of the forearm have a fracture, we term it as Forearm Fracture. Both bones are important not only for proper motion of the elbow and wrist joints but also serve as important attachments to muscles of the upper extremity.I n this chapter we are only concerned with the treatment of fractures of the shafts of the radius and ulna in their middle thirds.
There are many difficulties in treating the radius and ulna by closed manipulation; closed methods can give excellent results, but the element of luck is rather prominent, and for this reason I am in favour of operative treatment.
