The operative exposure of a fracture in an osteosynthesis causes disturbances in the blood supply, which often leads to a prolonged process of healing or even to healing problems, a fracture non-union, which is frequently located at the forearm. In order to keep the damage to the supplying vessels as little as possible, a study of the position, direction and number of the arteries of the bones of forearm is essential. In this study, we have studied the diaphyseal nutrient foramina (NF) in 144 ulnae and the findings discussed.
