A 12 year old male is brought to the ED after injuring his forearm rollerblading.  He fell onto his palm and noted pain and a deformity in his forearm.

Examination revealed normal vital signs and findings limited to his left arm.  His clavicle, shoulder, humerus, and hand were non-tender.  He was reluctant to move his shoulder since his forearm was in a splint and sling. There was an obvious angulation at the mid-forearm. He could move all his fingers.  No circulatory or sensory deficits were detected. 

Radiographs of his forearm were obtained.
