Proximal forearm Radius, extraarticular, multifragmentary - Bridge plate


Supine for lateral access i

This position and approach provide good access to the lateral proximal forearm, but medial access is quite limited. Repair of some olecranon and coronoid fractures may be difficult. Consider a posterior skin incision allowing a more extensile approach, with the patient prone or lateral decubitus.
