Supine for anterior access
This position can be indicated when there are additional hand or forearm injuries.
Lateral decubitus position
The lateral decubitus position can be helpful for managing proximal forearm fractures, particularly for large patients or those with concurrent distal humerus fractures.
Supine for posterior access
The majority of patients with isolated proximal forearm fracture can be positioned supine, with the arm across the chest, posterior exposure is enhanced.
