Abstract

We would like to report a case of treating a segmental fracture of ulnar shaft, with a concomitant olecranon fracture. The patient was treated using tension band wiring and intramedullary nailing procedures. Based on the nature of the olecranon, we believe this should be a recommended treatment method that minimizes complications for the patient that has multiple fractures and a dislocation of the forearm.
