ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a trifocal, diaphyseal fracture of the radius with a mid-diaphyseal fracture of the ulna in a 53-year-old Caucasian right-hand dominant woman involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle. The woman sustained a closed injury to the left forearm against the steering wheel, resulting in clinical deformity. The distal radius fracture of the patient was fixed using a five-hole titanium DCP while applying 1 mm compression.
