Further study details as provided by Colaris, Joost, M.D.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • pronation and supination

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • complications, function, esthetics, complains in daily living, X-rays

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: January 2006
Detailed Description:

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. 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.
