Management of isolated ulnar shaft fractures.

Hand Clinics 2007 May
Isolated fractures of the ulnar shaft are common forearm injuries. Although seemingly benign, they may be complicated by nonunion, radioulnar synostosis, and loss of motion.

Stable fractures are managed well with forearm bracing. Unstable fractures are reliably treated with open reduction and internal fixation with compression plating.
