Children between five and eleven years of age with a distal fracture of the forearm present after two years with the same results in function, whether or not they have been treated conservatively or operatively.


Prospective, multicenter, randomised, controlled, observer-blinded study

Material und Methoden

Between February 2014 and December 2015 50 children between 5 and 11 years of age with an angulated fracture of the distal forearm ( 23-M/2-3 and 23-E/1-2) according to the AO-classification were included into the study.

After randomization they were either treated conservatively with a single cast or treated with a reduction under anesthesia, the fracture was than fixated with a Kirschner wire and a cast. Three months, 12 months and 24 months after the accident the children were examined in follow up visits regarding pain and function.


The results have not been evaluated by now because there are still patients who have not had their follow up visit after two years, but will be by the end of the year 2017.
