Abstract

Partial closure of the growth plate is an uncommon complication in the distal radius even though distal radial fractures are among the most common injuries in children. We report two cases of resection of a bony bridge in the distal radial growth plate in boys aged 8 and 9 years with a description of the operative technique.
