The optimal management for ulnar shaft fractures remains debatable. Investigators have advocated nonoperative management as well as internal fixation of these fractures.
The primary objective of this study was to determine the effect of alternative management strategies of fractures of the ulnar shaft on rates of union, infection, and functional outcomes. A secondary objective was to examine outcomes after alternative strategies in managing patients with bone defects.
