The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne has some great clinical practice guidelines for several different fractures.  Link is below for more details.

To find fracture guidelines – browse by category and click on ‘Fractures’

Below are two cast molding tips highlighted in the guidelines:

1. Three Point Molding



2. Interosseous Molding




Rang’s Children’s Fractures textbook also summarizes what makes an excellent cast:

Interosseous Mold

AP > Lateral Diameter

Three Point Mold

Flat ulnar border
