We create a randomized clinical trial between the treatment with above elbow armcast alone and the treatment of above elbow in combination with a short arm cast for stable midshaft both-bone forearm fractures.
children who arrive at the emergency unit with a stable both-bone midshaft forearm fracture will be asked to join the trial.
If the fracture will be stable during reposition in the operating room, a randomization between 2 kinds of plaster treatment will be done.
Outpatient clinic visits till a follow-up of 6 months. During these visits we will investigate: consolidation and dislocation on X-ray, function of both arms, complains in daily living and complications.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

For the non-surgical treatment of distal radius fractures in adults a variety cast options are available, including or not the elbow joint. The literature is inconclusive regarding the nee...
This study prospectively compares the performance of an above-elbow cast (long arm cast) and a below-elbow cast (short arm cast) to maintain reduction in conservatively managed distal radi...
Type I supracondylar fractures are elbow fractures that occur in children aged 3-10 years. Many different treatment options exist to treat this type of fracture. The purpose of this study ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if surgery using a plate and screws to fix a forearm fracture (ulnar shaft) will improve functional outcome compared to non-operative treatment ou...

Clinical evidence suggests vitamin C (Vit C) may protect against the development of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) after fracture and/or surgery. Tibia fracture followed by 4 weeks cast immobil...
We present a case of a neglected dislocation of the elbow joint. A 28-year-old patient suffered elbow joint dislocation with fracture of the radial head after a fall from a considerable height. Follow...
To investigate the efficacy, advantages and disadvantages of internal and external elbow joint approach and olecranon osteotomy approach for the treatment of intercondylar fracture of humerus.
The ideal type of immobilization for nondisplaced pediatric elbow fractures has not been established. We hypothesized that the use of a long-arm cylinder made of soft cast material will result in simi...
Diaphyseal fractures of the distal humerus have a high rate of union when treated with a functional brace or an above-elbow cast (AEC). This study compares alignment of the humerus and motion of the e...
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
