|Official Title:||Treatment of Stable Dislocated Both-Bone Distal Forearm Fractures in Children: A Randomized Trial Between Treatment With en Without Kirschner-Wires|
- re-operations/ re-dislocations
- pronation and supination
- complications, function, esthetics, complains in daily living, X-rays
|Study Start Date:||January 2006|
children who arrive at the emergency unit with a dislocated both-bone distal forearm fracture will be asked to join the trial.
After informed consent, a randomization between 2 kinds of treatment will be done: K-wire fixation or no K-wire fixation of the fracture after a stable reposition.
Outpatient clinic visits till a follow-up of 6 months. During these visits we will investigate: the number of re-dislocations, re-operations, consolidation and dislocation on X-ray, function of both arms, complains in daily living and complications.
