Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: January 2006
Detailed Description:

Children who arrive at the emergency unit with a non-dislocated both-bone midshaft forearm fracture will be asked to join the trial. After informed consent we will do a randomization between 6 weeks above elbow cast and 3 weeks above elbow cast in combination with 3 weeks under elbow cast.

Outpatient clinic visits till a follow-up of 6 months. During these visits we will investigate: consolidation and dislocation on X-ray, function of both arms, complaints in daily living and complications.
