Author(s): Dr. Kishorchand Naorem and Dr. Temjensunep
Abstract: Paediatric forearm fractures are generally treated nonoperatively by close reduction and casting. Recently there has been trend on intramedullary nailing of diaphyseal forearm fractures for unstable fracture pattern to impove clinical outcomes. In our study we evaluated the rate of fracture union, functional outcome and complications in forearm fractures of children and adolescents treated with titanium elastic intramedullary nails. All cases achieved union within 16 weeks and excellent functional outcome after surgical management without significant complications. Intramedullary nailing with Titanium elastic nails is a feasible and effective method of treatment for unstable diaphyseal fractures of forearm in children and adolescents.
