Diaphyscal fractures of radius and ulna present specific problems not encountered in treatment of other long bones. In addition to restoration of length, apposition and normal axial alignment, correct rotational alignment must be maintained if a good range of pronation and supination is to be achieved. To overcome all these problems various methods are employed including closed reduction and immobilization in a plaster cast, open reduction with or without internal fixations such as standard plates or special plates like Egger’s slotted plates and various types of intramedullary fixation. In the late 1950 Muller et al. developed what is known as ASIF (formery A. O.) compression plates. We are presenting here a series of 37 cases of forearm fractures treated by compression plates.
