ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for "ulna, fracture of" is presented. It refers to the fracture of one of the forearm bones called the ulna. Fractures of the ulna commonly occur across the half of the shaft or at the olecranon process. A blow to the arm or a fall on to the hand usually causes a fracture to the shaft. A fall on to the elbow results to a fracture of the olecranon process.
