Distal radius and carpal fractures in children and adolescent account for approximately 25% of all pediatric fractures . For the age distribution, 5 to 14 years olds group comprised largest proportion (26%) of all hand and forearm fractures than other age groups. Radius and/or ulna fractures took up the largest proportion of fractures (32.9%) in age group 5 to 14 years old. A population-based study revealed that the incidence rate of forearm fractures in boys and girls aged 5 to 14 years increased dramatically. In particular, the age group 10 to 14 has the highest increase in the period from 1997 to 2009 .
