Distal radius fractures are the most common fractures dstal in adults, accounting for HPI – Patient sustained fracture about one year back. Any pain in the limb of the same side should also be investigated to exclude associated injuries to the same limb.

Very rarely, pressure on the muscle components of the hand or forearm is sufficient to create a compartment syndrome. Disability is the lack of ability to radiockbital physical daily activities. The majority of distal radius fractures are treated with conservative nonoperative management, which involves immobilization through application of plaster or radiicubital with or without closed reduction. D ICD – Inwith the advent of X-rays, the visualisation of the distal radius fracture become more apparent.

Galeazzi Fractures

Now he has presented 2days back with increased deformity and infection How would you treat this patient? Perform closed reduction of the radius, then immobilize the forearm in a long arm cast in supination. Diagnosis may be evident clinically when the distal radius is deformed, but should be confirmed by X-ray. The alignment of the DRUJ is also important, as this can be a source of a pain and loss of rotation after final healing and maximum recovery.


Trimalleolar fracture Bimalleolar fracture Pott’s fracture.

Fractures and cartilage injuries Sx2— Closed reduction of a distal radius fracture involves first anesthetizing the affected area with a hematoma blockintravenous regional anesthesia Bier’s blocksedation or a general anesthesia. Inpercutaneous pinning was first used. Distal radius fractures are often associated with distal radial ulnar joint DRUJ injuries, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends that postreduction lateral wrist X-rays should be obtained in all patients with distal radius fractures in order to preclude DRUJ injuries or dislocations.

Swelling and displacement can cause compression on the median nerve which results in acute carpal tunnel syndrome and requires prompt treatment. There are three major groups: June Learn how and when to remove this template message.

Ombredanne, a Parisian surgeon infirst reported the use of nonbridging external fixation in the management of distal radius fractures. Views Read Edit View history. Malreduced distal radius fracture demonstrating the deformity in the wrist. Common raviocubital associated with distal radius fractures are interosseous intercarpal ligaments injuries, especially scapholunate 4.


The cast is usually maintained for about 6 weeks. Journal of Surgical Orthopaedic Advances.

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. Castingsurgery [1]. HPI – Patient sustained galeazzi fracture right radius 8months back. It is a type of distal radius fracture.

Distal radius fracture – Wikipedia

Based on symptoms, X-rays [1]. Nerve injury, especially of the median nerve and presenting as carpal tunnel syndrome, is commonly reported following distal radius fractures.

Variations in immobilization techniques involve the type of cast, position of immobilization, and the length of time required in the cast.

If the anatomy bony alignment is not properly restored, function may remain poor even after healing. If the fracture affects the median nerveonly then is a reduction indicated. Lisfranc Jones March Calcaneal. L8 – 10 years in practice.
