Results of 213 diphyseal fractures of radius and ulna, fixed with semitubular plates (D.C.P.) as advocated by A. O. is presented. Average age of the patients was 48.77 years and were followed for 8 months to 4 years. The result was excellent in 54.7 per cent patients, good in 37.5 and poor in 8.4 per cent of patients. Semitubular plates were found to yield inadequate rigid fixation in upper 1/3rd fractures of the forearm.
