Abstract: Background and Objective:
Fractures of the forearm bones may result in severe loss of function unless adequately treated. In addition to regaining length, apposition and axial alignment and normal rotational alignment is necessary for good range of pronation and supination. Bone healing of both radius and ulna is slow because of small contactsurfaces at the fracture site and is the reason why stable fixation of fragments is necessary.
The advantages of plating are.
1) Excellent control of fracture fragments
2) Anatomical realignment is possible.
3) Very low rate of non-union.
4) Good to excellent functional results.
So we decided to study and evaluate the results of internal fixation with LC-DCP to confirm its present day relevance.
