Are there any long term effects on wrist or hand of surgically fixed (plates and screws) proximal fractures in both ulna and radius of same forearm?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

The long term effects are related more to the fracture itself, rather than the paltes and scews.
In normal wrist motion the radius bone rotates around the ulna bone, so a fracture tio either bone can cause a deformity which can limit this rotation.
