Pediatric forearm shaft 22r-D/4.1

General considerations

The choice of treatment depends on the stability of the fracture.

Many true single bone fractures are minimally displaced, stable fractures and may be treated conservatively.

A completely displaced fracture is unstable. Conservative treatment is more difficult and primary operative fixation may be required.

For further details on stability see the corresponding additional material.
