Where Is The Ulna
Hx of approx 30 fractures l arm/wrist, lately a lot of pain n fluid in wrist where radius/ulna meet metacarpals. Is n ultrasound needed any radiation?
None until healing: You should get current xrays to confirm healing and clearance from your md before resuming bench press. Once healed you can resume your usual technique (except in extenuating circumstances), just be smart about gradually increasing weight/reps/sets/intensity--you won't be 100% and could risk injuring other structures if you do too much too soon. See an orthopedic specialist in your area. ...Read more
Bones heal at equal: Rates given there is equal amount of injury. So more energy into an injury with greater fragmentation may seem to be something that takes longer to heal or a bone that was displaced or has a poor blood supply. The ulna may have a small styloid fracture commonly with a radius fracture and it may seem in this case to "heal" faster as the fracture is less complex in this certain situation ...Read more
Hello. Can you please tell me whether there are any visible signs of advanced age in a skeletal ulna?
Depends on age: There is a growth plate at the end of the ulna near the wrist. Time of fusion can approximate bone age of patient. Usually when completely fused about 16 years of age with variability between men and women. Females are usually approximately two years more advanced than males. Fusion of growth plates particularly legs can sometimes predict ultimate growth of the individual. ...Read more

Has anyone done surgery from having a broken ulna. And is it better to have titanium or steel plates?

There's not going to be a magic pill, home remedy, or "natural supplement" that takes away pain completely. A multidisciplinary approach that includes some prescription meds, acupuncture and physical therapy is best. ...Read more
