Difficult problems and complications at the forearm - FESSH 2012 Instructional Course Book



The forearm is not a couple of two bones connecting the mobile elbow with the wrist/hand unit, the performing part of the upper limb. It is a real joint-system allowing to rotate the hand around a longitudinal axis, to better position the hand and to grasp objects. At each end a complex joint is present. Both bones have a well determinated anatomical special structure and both are connected with interosseous membrane of which the real function, pathology and treatment remain unrevealed. This is the framework of which this instructional course is dealing with. It is impossible to discuss the forearm without flirting with elbow and wrist joints. Both soft tissue and hardware problems, active and structural disorders, adults and children, congenital, acquired, degenerative, (post)traumatic pathology are discussed. It is obvious that the topic is incomplete. We have stressed on these problems which are specific to the forearm and not on those which involve the forearm as well as other joints. We are convinced that with this course a better understanding of this “forgotten” joint will be provided. All authors have a particular interest in the topic, have presented and published on his subject and their opinion is often the gold standard for a particular aspect of this subject.
