These fractures, although less common, often require surgery in active, healthy patients to address displacement of both the joint and the metaphysis. Examples of scoring system based on clinical assessment are: Reverse deformity is seen in volar radiocuubital Smith’s fracture.

Distal radius fracture – Wikipedia

What should be further treatment plan. Nerve injury, especially of the median nerve and presenting as carpal tunnel syndrome, is commonly reported following distal radius fractures. Perform open reduction and internal fixation of the radius, then assess the distal radioulnar joint for instability, and reconstruct the distal radioulnar joint with a looped palmaris longus autograft if instability persists.

A Colles fracture as seen on X-ray: Older people with osteoporosis who are still active are at an increased risk of getting distal radius fractures.

Galeazzi Fractures

Pain medicationelevation [1]. More force is required to produce a fracture in males than females. There are many classification systems for distal radius fracture. Prognosis varies depending on dozens of variables. If the reduction is maintained, then the cast should continue for 4 to 6 weeks. Pain, bruising, and swelling of the wrist [1]. Another author, Pouteau, suggested the common mechanism of injury which leads to this type of fractures – injury to the wrist when a person falls on an outstretched hand with dorsal displacement of the wrist.


This arthritis can worsen over time.

Galeazzi Fractures – Trauma – Orthobullets

Perform closed reduction of the radius, then immobilize the forearm in a long arm cast in supination. Some residual deformity is common, but this often remodels as the child grows.

Rockwood and Green’s Fractures in Adults 8th ed. In those who are young and active, if the fracture is not displaced, the patient can be followed up in one week. A—extra-articular, B—partial articular, and C—complete articular which can further subdivided into nine main groups and 27 subgroups depending on the degree of communication and direction of displacement.

D ICD – L8 – 10 years in practice. Shorter immobilization is associated with better recovery when compared to prolonged immobilization.

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. Both scoring systems show good reliability and validity. Please vote below and help us build the most advanced adaptive learning platform in medicine The complexity of this topic is appropriate for?

Swelling and displacement can cause compression on the median nerve which results in acute carpal tunnel syndrome and requires prompt treatment. Closed reduction of a distal radius fracture involves first cractura the affected area with a hematoma blockintravenous regional anesthesia Bier’s blocksedation or a general anesthesia.

The wrist may be radially deviated due to shortening of the radius bone. Therefore, follow up within the first week of fracture is important. However, it is unclear whether intercarpal fractuea and triangular fibrocartilage injuries are associated with long term pain and disability for those who are affected. Archived from the original on 2 July Malunionhowever, is not uncommon, and can lead to residual pain, grip weakness, reduced range of motion especially rotationand persistent deformity.


June Learn how and when to remove this template message. The Journal of Trauma: In the elderly, distal radius fractures heal and may result in adequate function following nonoperative treatment. Impairment is the abnormal physical function, such as lack of forearm rotation.

Basilar skull fracture Blowout fracture Mandibular fracture Nasal fracture Le Fort fracture of skull Zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture Zygoma fracture. 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.

Some of these patients tolerate severe deformities and minor loss of wrist motion very well, even without reduction of the fracture. InGuilaume Dupuytren acknowledged the contributions by Petit and Pouteau, agreeing that the distal end radius fracture rwdiocubital indeed a fracture, not a dislocation. Any pain in the limb of the same side should also be investigated to exclude associated injuries to the same limb.

In younger people, these fractures typically occur during sports or a motor vehicle collision. The most common cause of this type of fracture is a fall on an outstretched hand from standing height, although some fractures will be due to high-energy injury.

With increased bending back, more force is required to produce a fracture. Langenbeck’s Archives of Surgery.
