How important is this topic for board examinations? Shorter immobilization is associated with better recovery when compared to prolonged immobilization. InGuilaume Dupuytren acknowledged the contributions by Petit and Pouteau, agreeing that the distal end radius fracture is indeed a fracture, not a dislocation. Correction should be undertaken if the wrist radiology falls outside the acceptable limits: About one week gractura patient again presented with broken implant and non union.

Now he has presented 2days back with increased deformity and infection How would you treat this patient? In those who are young and active, if the fracture is not displaced, the patient can be followed up in one week.

These scores includes assessment of range of motiongrip strength, ability to perform activities of daily living, and radiological picture. Nonunion is rare; almost all of these fractures heal. Colles’ fractureSmith’s fractureBarton’s fractureGadiocubital fracture [2]. Men who sustain distal radius fractures are usually younger, generally in their 40s vs. Perform closed reduction of the radiocubitxl, then immobilize the forearm in a long arm cast in supination. A Colles fracture as seen on X-ray: More force is required to produce a fracture in males than females.

How important is this topic for clinical practice? Educational video describing the condition known as Galeazzi Fracture. Scaphoid Rolando Bennett’s Boxer’s Busch’s.

Galeazzi Fractures

Swelling, deformity, tenderness, and loss of wrist motion are normal features on examination of a person with a distal radius fracture. Distal radius fractures are the most common fractures seen in adults, accounting for Compartment syndrome increased risk with high energy crush injury open fractures vascular injuries or coagulopathies diagnosis pain with passive stretch is most sensitive Neurovascular injury uncommon except t ype III open fractures Refracture usually occurs following plate removal increased risk with removing plate too early large plates 4.


The majority of distal radius fractures are treated with conservative nonoperative management, which involves immobilization through application of plaster or splint with or without closed reduction. These options include percutaneous pinning, external fixation, and ORIF using plating. A large proportion of these fractures occur in elderly people who may have less requirement for strenuous use of their wrists. Tendon injury can occur in people treated both nonoperatively and operatively, most commonly to the extensor pollicis longus tendon.

What other anatomic structure is most commonly injured with this fracture? Ulnar styloid process fracture increases the risk of TFCC injury by a factor of 5: Therefore, periodic reviews are important to prevent malunion of the displaced fractures. Pain medicationelevation [1]. After 3 months the patient presented with broken implant. What would be your next step in treatment for this patient?

Examples of scoring system based on clinical assessment are: However, the surgeon is unable to reduce fraactura distal radioulnar joint. Radiocubitl on symptoms, X-rays [1].

Retrieved 18 October However, it is unclear whether intercarpal ligaments and triangular fibrocartilage injuries are associated with long term pain and disability for those who are affected. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. With increased bending back, more force is required to produce a fracture. Although the nonsurgical group exhibited greater anatomic misalignment such as radial deviation, and ulnar variance, these changes did not seem to have significant impact on overall pain and quality of life.

However, an above-elbow cast may cause long-term rotational contracture. Core Tested Community All. Castingsurgery [1]. What should be further treatment plan. Disability is the lack of ability to perform physical daily fractkra.


Distal radius fracture – Wikipedia

Injury, Infection, and Critical Care. Malunionhowever, is not uncommon, and can lead to residual pain, grip weakness, reduced range of motion especially rotationand persistent deformity. Diagnosis may be evident clinically when the distal radius is deformed, but should be confirmed by X-ray. Perform closed reduction of the radius, then assess the distal radioulnar joint for instability, and perform internal fixation of the radius if instability persists.

Galeazzi Fractures – Trauma – Orthobullets

InMalgaigne described the mechanism of injury for distal end radius fractures which can be caused by falling on the outstretched hand or on the back of the hand, and also the consequences if the hand fracture is not treated adequately. Treatment options for distal radius fractures include nonoperative management, external fixation, and internal fixation. Perform open reduction and internal fixation of the radius, then assess the proximal radioulnar joint for instability, and percutaneously fix the proximal radioulnar joint if instability persists.

Surgical options have been shown to be successful in patients with unstable extra-articular or minimal articular distal radius fractures. Older people with osteoporosis who are still active are at an increased risk of getting distal radius fractures. X-ray of the affected wrist is required if a fracture is suspected. These fractures are the most common of the three groups mentioned above that require surgical management.

The wrist may be radially deviated due to shortening of the radius bone. Bumper fracture Segond fracture Gosselin fracture Toddler’s fracture Pilon fracture Plafond fracture Tillaux fracture.
