Injuries of the forearm and wrist

Forearm fractures account for maximum limb fractures. Wrist fractures are the most common forearm fracture. Fracture risk factors include osteoporosis (more common in women than in men) and malignancy (pathological fractures). Fractures of the radius and ulna might occur in isolation - usually due to a direct blow - but these are usually associated with fracture or displacement of the other bone in that forearm. An epidemiological study in Denmark found that 4 out of 5 forearm fractures were treated conservatively.
