Pediatric distal forearm 23r-E/1.1

General considerations

Simple casting, with or without closed reduction, is the most frequent and usually most successful treatment option for these injuries.

Casting should always respect the three-point fixation/molding principle.

Note: Be aware of nonaccidental injuries in very young children with fractures around the physis.
