Abstract: Forearm fractures i.e. fractures of shaft of radius and ulna are very common in todays high speed life. There are variable treatment options available including plaster cast, nailing and plating which are most common modalities of treatment. Considering the advantages and disadvantages of all the available modalities of treatment, the present study is an attempt to asses and compare the results of nailing and plating in fractures of shaft of radius and ulna over a period of three years. Multiple aspects of results and outcome have been studied and compiled so that it will be helpful for other orthopaedic surgeons and students in making a decision in management of forearm fractures. The study included a total of 25 patients.
