ABSTRACT
Plastic deformation of the forearm is a rare and frequently missed injury in adults that can result in significant loss of forearm rotation. We report on a skeletally mature 19-year-old man with traumatic plastic deformation of the radius and ulna resulting in complete loss of forearm pronation. The patient was treated with multiple-level osteotomies of the radius and ulna 7 months postinjury. The patient had full forearm pronation at 4 months followup.

    Introduction: The treatment of ulnar-sided wrist pain after malunited distal radius fractures remains controversial. Radial corrective osteotomy can restore congruity in the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) as well as adequate length of the radius. Ulnar shortening osteotomies leave the radius'...

    Galleazi type fracture dislocations are sometimes associated with complex dorsal dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint due to interposition of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon. We present the first reported case of complex volar distal radioulnar joint dislocation in a Galleazi variant...
