Distal Ulna Fractures

Isolated fractures of the distal ulna are relatively rare and usually result from a direct force or crush injury. However, ulna fractures do occur more commonly in association with fractures of the distal radius, with up to 65% of fractures of the distal radius having associated distal ulna fractures. In this chapter distal ulna reduction and fixation techniques are discussed.
