Pediatric Distal Double Bone Forearm Fracture Remodeling

Berg, Eugene E.

Radiology Review

Children's bones differ from those of adults in their capacity for ongoing growth and their ability to adapt to a changing body habitus. Similarly, pediatric fractures generally heal more rapidly and have the ability to reshape deformities, a process known as remodeling. The following case exemplifies the remodeling process of a distal radius fracture over time.
