Abstract

Introduction: Traumatic bowing is a commonly missed diagnosis on which only little information is available, inadequate treatment can cause permanent function loss.

Method: A systematic review would determine what the effect is of treatment of traumatic bowing of the lower arm in children on the functional outcome. A search on Embase, Medline, Web of Science, Scopus, Cochrane, Pubmed publisher, CINAHL and Google scholar, last accessed at the 15th of May 2016. Intervention of interest was treatment; with reduction, reduction and cast or cast only. The primary outcome measure was (I) function; pro and supination, (II) posttraumatic function, (III) posttreatment function and (IV) residual bowing.

Results: Five articles were included. Treatment by reduction only showed a normal function, 4 weeks to 8 weeks of cast and reduction followed by cast, both resulted in 0 degrees to 20 degrees residual of pronation loss.

Discussion: The treatment was overall well tolerated, had a direct effect and lead to faster restore of function. It is unclear to what amount of bowing can be accepted without any loss of function. But in view of the few complications and good results for reduction, the overall opinion is to reduce all significant bowing fractures of the lower arm in children with limited function.
