Waterproof cast liners in paediatric forearm fractures: a randomized trial

Methods A total of 105 children were enrolled in a randomized trial and received a below-elbow synthetic cast with either of the two cast liners. In the patient-reported results, the Wet or Dry ® group was rated significantly higher in the odor and water resistance categories. Conclusions The use of waterproof cast liners seems to be safe in children with forearm fractures, with some variations in the results between the two products tested.

Does the location of short-arm cast univalve effect pressure of the three-point mould?

Forearm and distal radius fractures are two of the most common fractures in children. Modifiable factors that contribute to a cast's ability to maintain the fracture reduction are a combination of the proper cast application and three-point moulding process. This paper explores how the location of the univalve cut places pressure on a three-point mold site for a typical dorsally displaced radius fracture. Methods We used nine force-sensing resistors on an arm model to gather pressure data at the three-point mould sites. Cast padding and a three-point moulded short arm fibreglass cast was used. Casts univalled in the coronal plane remained univalled in the sagittal plane, with up to 16% more pressure across the three moulding sites when compared to casts univalved in the coronal plane. Univalizing the cast dorsally or volarly results in less pressure loss at molding sites, according to this report.
