Nonoperative treatment of ulna-shaft fractures may result in healing with residual displacement. In the study reported here, we used a cadaveric model to try to determine whether displacement significantly reduces forearm supination and pronation. Transverse osteotomies were made one third, one half, and two thirds of the distance from the proximal end to… CONTINUE READING
