The main causes of limitation of rotations were residual angulatory deformity (Especially if it resulted in narrowing of the interosseous space), residual posterior angulation of the ulnar fracture, residual rotational malalignment of the fracture fragments, and derangement of the inferior radioulnar joint owing to relative shortening of the radius.
