What Are The Symptoms of A Proximal Ulna Fracture?

Proximal ulna fractures may result from moderate to high energy injuries, such as falls or accidents. Pain and a flail forearm or elbow joint is the most noticeable symptom of a proximal ulna fracture.

What Are The Treatment Options Available For A Proximal Ulna Fracture?

In the case of milder or undisplaced injuries, our doctors may recommend treatment with a cast. In contrast, displaced injuries may typically require surgery to address the associated deformity or disrupted joint surface.
