There are buckle fractures of the mid-diaphyses of the radius and ulna.
Buckle fractures are incomplete fractures and the commonest distal radius or ulnar injury. They are usually metaphyseal, but can sometimes affect the diaphysis - as in this case.
These are not greenstick fractures - the abnormal buckled cortex is on the convex side of the fracture.
