Abstract

In the pediatric population, the majority of displaced 2-bone forearm fractures can be reduced and stabilized by conservative means. In this article, we report on a retrospective study of 23 patients with unstable or open forearm fractures treated with closed reduction and percutaneous stabilization with flexible titanium nails. All fractures healed without complication, and final functional results were excellent.
