Fracture of the forearm bones may result in severe loss of function unless adequately treated. Severe loss of function may result even though adequate healing of the fracture occurs. Hence a proper method of treatment is necessary to get back stability as well as normal range of function
Methodology: All the 50 patients were followed up at 6-8 weeks, 11-14 weeks and 6 months for functional and radiological review
Results: In group A the average time for radiological union was 8.0 weeks (6- 15 weeks) and in Group B the average time was 6.0 weeks (4- 12 weeks).
Conclusion: The locking compression plating of diaphyseal bones produced excellent results, the advantages being early mobilization, early union and hence prevention of fracture disease. The only disadvantage is that it is more expensive than the DCP.
