In brief: See companion answr
The deformation creating the misdirection of the hand generally involves both bones of the forearm. Since both are necessary for proper function, deformity of one tends to modify the other.Although the forearm defect is very obvious, the other issues associated with the condition will have more impact.

In brief: Radial club hand
Each has a variety of subtypes.
There can be mild radial hypoplasia or "club hand" that just needs observation or stretching and severe that typically has surgery. Ulnar hypoplasia or "club hand" may be as severe or mild but surgery is not often offered.
