Compression-plate fixation of acute fractures of the diaphyses of the radius and ulna.

A retrospective study was done of eighty-seven patients who had 129 diaphyseal fractures of either the radius or the ulna, or both, and who were treated with fixation using an AO dynamic-compression plate. Open fractures were internally fixed primarily, and both comminuted and open fractures routinely had bone-grafting. Ninety-eight per cent of the fractures united, and 92 per cent of the patients achieved an excellent or satisfactory functional result. The rate of infection was 2.3 per cent. Refracture occurred after removal of a 4.5-millimeter dynamic-compression plate in two patients, but there were no refractures after removal of a 3.5-millimeter plate. The 3.5-millimeter-plate system gave excellent results in patients who had a fracture of the forearm, and it minimized the risk of refracture. Our results demonstrated that immediate plate fixation of an open fracture of the forearm, with a low rate of complications, is possible.
