Abstract

The authors report a painful non-union of the distal radius in a 28-year-old man who sustained a gunshot wound to his distal forearm at the age of 13. The non-union was complicated with dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) and ulnar impaction. The non-union was reconstructed 15 years after the initial injury with Darrach ulnar shortening and ulnar intercalary bone graft to the radius. The non-union healed and the symptoms completely resolved.
