Diaphyseal fractures of the forearm comprise up to 20% of all injuries to the upper extremity according to reported data (Renné and Weller). Seventy-five percent of the fractures occur in the distal third (including those in the vicinity of the wrist joint), 18% in the middle third, and 7% in the proximal third (Blount).
