Undislocated Distal Both-Bone Forearm Fractures in Children
Treatment of Undislocated Both-Bone Distal Forearm Fractures in Children: A Randomized Trial Between Treatment With Above- and Under Elbow Cast.
We create a randomized clinical trial between above- and below elbow cast to find out what kind of treatment is optimal for undislocated both-bone distal forearm fractures.

children who arrive at the emergency unit with a undislocated both-bone distal forearm fracture will be asked to join the trial.

After informed consent, a randomization between 2 kinds of cast 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.
