Abstract: Rotations of the forearm are very essential for activities of daily living1. Diaphyseal fractures of Both Bones of the Forearm often lead to loss of rotations of the forearm. So an essential aspect of management of such fractures is achieving near normal rotations of the forearm as this affects patient’s perception of their functional outcome. Plate fixation is the treatment of choice of fracture Both Bones Forearm in adults as it restores length, apposition, axial and rotational alignment and gives good functional outcome.
Previous studies have shown the importance of restoration of Radial bow in achieving maximal rotational movement of forearm. But some of the recent studies have been unable to find a significant association between restoration of Radial bow and the return of rotations of the forearm.
So this study was done to determine the relation between the Radial bow and rotations of forearm after plate fixation of fracture Both Bones of Forearm.
