abstract

  • The patient was a 15-year-old adolescent girl with a chief complaint of intermittent pain and clicking at her right distal radioulnar joint, after having fractured her forearm 5 months previously. Radiographs of the patient's forearm indicated a midshaft radial deformity. Given the patient's pain and limited range of motion, computed tomography imaging was requested to assess whether the midshaft malunion resulted in distal radioulnar joint instability and to plan the corrective osteotomy.
