Injuries to the nerves associated with fractured forearms in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Partial and complete injured median and ulnar nerves caused by fractures of the radius and ulna, respectively, in which the symptoms of nervous injury were induced at the time of fracture are reported. In cases with complete loss of nervous function early exploration should be considered at the time of reposition or plating of the fractured bones, or both, and in patients in whom nervous dysfunction occurs after the operation.
