Role of Dynamic Compression Plating (DCP) In Fractures of Forearm Bones

Girish Sahni [3] | Dimple Sahni [3] | Kanwaljeet Singh Sandhu

Abstract: 50 cases of fracture forearm bones treated by 3.5 mm dynamic compression platting were studied prospectively clinically and radiologically. The results were assessed in terms of union and movements at elbow, wrist and radioulnar joints. After follow up period of 6 to 10 months, 80 % were graded excellent, 18 % good and 2 % as failure. External support was not used. ORIF with DCP still has a prospect in repair of forearm factures considering its low complication rate, cost and acceptable results in developing country like India where financial matter and non availability of C-arm image intensifier are to be considered.
