- 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 an unstable reposition, the fracture will be fixated with 2 Kirschner-wires. The arm will be immobilised in above elbow cast during 4 weeks.
