This study aims to describe the epidemiology of pediatric diaphyseal forearm fractures in an urban population and the complications of titanium elastic nailing. The medical records of 456 consecutive fractures were reviewed. The annual incidence was 0.7/1000 children. Eighty-six (19%) fractures in 83 children were titanium elastic nailed. The complication rate was 24%. Dorsal entry to the radius was associated with extensor pollicis longus rupture and radial entry was associated with sensory nerve deficit in three cases each...

UNLABELLED: Diaphyseal malunion of the forearm may cause loss of pronation and supination, a painful distal radioulnar joint, and aesthetic problems. Seventeen patients (10 males, seven females; mean age, 20.6 +/- 9.3 years) were operated on because of symptomatic malunion after a pediatric forearm fracture. Six patients had predominant loss of pronation (Group 1), four had predominant loss of supination (Group 2), and seven had a painful distal radioulnar joint (Group 3). An osteotomy of the radius was performed in seven patients and of both forearm bones in 10...

The purpose of this study was to examine the results of pediatric patients with type I open fractures managed nonoperatively.

Forty patients were followed until healing of the fracture clinically and radiologically. One deep infection occurred in this series, producing an overall infection rate of 2.5%. This compares favorably with the literature's infection rate of 1.9% in pediatric type I open fractures treated operatively...
