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...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric both-bone diaphyseal forearm fractures are commonly treated in a variety of clinical settings. Most often, closed reduction followed by immobilization leads to satisfactory results. However, in the adolescent population (10-16 years of age), forearm fractures are more challenging due to less remodeling potential. The purpose of this review was to provide an overview of the anatomy, biomechanics, and treatment options relevant to adolescent patients. METHODS: A systematic review of peer-reviewed publications and abstracts related to the treatment for pediatric both-bone diaphyseal forearm fractures in adolescents was carried out...

BACKGROUND: Plate fixation is the most commonly used technique for the treatment of shaft fractures of both forearm bones (SFBFBs). However, all fractures are difficult to treat with plate fixation because of soft tissue injuries, fracture patterns, or the patient's condition. The purpose of this study is to compare the functional results of plate fixation only and combined plate and intramedullary (IM) nail fixation in SFBFBs. METHODS: Fifty-nine cases of SFBFBs that were surgically treated from June 2007 to July 2012 were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVES: To determine which method of operative fixation, plate and screw, or intramedullary nails (IMN) fixation is superior for pediatric both bone forearm fractures (BBFF). DATA SOURCES: PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane, from 1980 to 2011, in English. STUDY SELECTION: We selected for detailed review all studies with children or adolescents with comparative data (or individual patient data) for BBFF fixed with IMN or open reduction internal fixation with plates and screws...
