Abstract

Forearm fracture are one of the common fractures ,although complete data are not present regarding epidemiology of forearm fractures but at some international centers forearm diaphysis fractures account for 5% of all fractures out of which most of the fractures are distal forearm fractures. In literature little stress is given over the management of distal ulna fracture. In our research we have divided distal ulna fracture in different categories like combined fracture with radius, acute ulnar styloid fracture, ulnar styloid with nonunion, ulnar neck fracture, fracture with commination. A systematic approach towards these fracture by using this classification can be helpful in management of these fracture.

Key Words: Distal ulna fracture, ulna styloid, fracture forearm.
