The advent of locking compression plate (LCP) has provided convenient and secure fixation of distal ulna fractures. This study was performed to evaluate the functional and clinical outcomes following LCP distal ulna plate fixation of irreducible or unstable distal ulna fractures with concomitant distal radius fractures. Retrospective review of 17 patients who had been treated with LCP distal ulna plates for distal ulna fractures was performed. The average age of the patients was 58.9 years… CONTINUE READING
