Immobilisation of torus fractures of the wrist in children (FORCE): a randomised controlled equivalence trial in the UK

Abstract:

Background: Torus (buckle) fractures of the wrist are the most common fractures in children, involving the distal radius and/or ulna. It is unclear if children require rigid immobilisation and follow-up, or would equally recover by being discharged without any immobilisation or a bandage. Given the large number of these injuries, identifying the optimal treatment strategy could have important effects on the child, school absences and NHS costs.
