BACKGROUND Internal fixation of diaphyseal forearm fractures has been associated with high union rates and satisfactory forearm motion. The purpose of this study was to investigate patient-based functional outcomes and to objectively measure strength following plate fixation of fractures of both bones of the forearm. METHODS Range of motion, quantitative strength measurements, and validated outcome measures-i.e., DASH (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand) and SF-36 (Short Form-36… CONTINUE READING
