Monteggia fractures are part of a spectrum of forearm injuries and commonly result either from a fall on the outstretched arm with forced pronation or from a direct injury. An understanding of the mechanism of injury and an appropriate clinical examination followed by operative intervention is the basis of present day good practice. This paper reviews the literature and presents a contemporary overview of the Monteggia fracture in adults.

    Galeazzi fractures are not uncommon. They frequently result from falls with forced hyperpronation of the forearm. They are potentially unstable because of certain destabilizing factors at the wrist. Early recognition is essential, as is early operative fixation of the radius in adults. This...
