Traumatic lesions of the forearm are increasingly common. One variant of these, traditionally known as Monteggia fracture, has the particularity in adults of displaying controversy with respect to whethe r it should be treated with plaster, a compression plate or endomedullary nailing. In an attempt to improve the results, the authors tested clinically a new locking nail for the ulna. Seven patients with Monteggia fractures wer e followed over a minimum their fractures in less than 4 months, with a mean of 2.5 months. Following the authors' rating, 3 patients had good and 4 patients very good results. The simplicity and suitability of the method counsel its extensive us e in diaphyseal fractures of the ulna.
