Radius

The upper articular surface of the radius has a centre of ossification which appears from the fifth to the seventh year, and unites at the eighteenth to twentieth year. There is also a centre for the tubercle. Surgical writers as a rule do not speak of epiphyseal separations of the upper ends of the radius and ulna.
