Abstract

Fractures of the proximal radius are a subject of considerable current interest because of the uncertainty surrounding some of the therapeutic problems. Several of these concerns, such as the indications for various treatments according to the type of lesion as well as the effects of resection of the radial head on both elbow stability and the distal radioulnar joint, are still controversial: a review of the literature still shows considerable difference of opinion.
