Although volar locking plates (VLPs) have been exclusively used for unstable distal radius fractures (DRFs), the optimal management of distal ulna fractures (DUFs) remains controversial. Internal fixation using a plate for DUFs might be challenging because of the presence of osteoporotic bone and fragile bone fragments in elderly patients.
Treatment pathways for isolated distal radius fractures in children are becoming more tailored to specific fracture types and include different management plans for stable buckle fractures versus potentially unstable distal radius fractures.
This study aims to investigate whether or not low-energy distal radius or vertebra fractures are harbingers of hip fracture.
Distal radius fractures are the most common fracture of childhood, occurring in ∼1 per 100 children annually. Given the high incidence of these fractures, we explored feasibility of a bundled payment model. We determined the total treatment costs for each child and identified components of fracture management that contributed to variations in cost.
Forearm fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common fractures seen in the upper extremity, and they represent approximately 1/6 of fractures treated in the emergency department. Forearm fractures are associated with a rare but known complication of a delayed ruptured extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon. This sequela is more commonly seen in adults after a nondisplaced distal radius fracture, with much variability in the incidence ranging from 0.07% to 5%. By contrast, this complication in th...
Distal radius fractures represent some of the most common injuries to the upper extremity, yet current evidence demonstrates great variability in the management of this injury. Elderly patients, in particular, stand to benefit from the early mobilization provided by operative fixation with a volar bearing plate.
Wrist fractures, involving the distal radius, are the most common fractures in children. Most are buckle fractures, which are stable fractures, unlike greenstick and other usually displaced fractures. There is considerable variation in practice, such as the extent of immobilisation for buckle fractures and use of surgery for seriously displaced fractures.
Die-punch fractures or impaction fractures of distal radius articular surface are difficult to treat and hard to achieve satisfactory reduction. We present a unique, percutaneous and minimally invasive technique to elevate the depressed lunate fossa and maintain the reduction of the elevated fragment with no need of grafting in such fractures. This technique is simple, reproducible and can be executed with simple instrumentations. We think it deserves a variety of implications in the treatment of distal rad...
Fractures of the distal radius only rarely give rise to complications in the immediate post-operative period. Combined median and ulnar nerve palsy is a complication that can be missed by the surgeon.
Distal radius fractures (DRF) are the most common fractures of the upper extremities. The incidence is expected to continue rising in the next years due to the increased life expectancy. Palmar locking plate stabilizing has since become the standard treatment for dorsally displaced DRF with a complication rate of 8-39% reported in the literature. Main aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of complications after DRF stabilization using palmar angular stable locking plate.
We describe a novel technique in correcting distal radius fractures deformed with significant shortening or coronal plane translation in both the acute or chronic setting. The technique involves using a modified push-pull device to assist the surgeon in correcting length and/or translation of the articular block without the use additional hardware outside of the volar plate.
The objective of this study was to explore whether there were any differences between the theoretical operative treatment of distal radius fractures according to AAOS guideline on basis of measurement of radiographs and the treatment they actually received in our institution.
A 79-year old man with prostate cancer under active surveillance for 5 years was referred for a PSMA-PET/MRI for re-evaluation because of a rising prostate-specific antigen value. PET/MRI revealed a ribbonlike tracer accumulation in a healing fracture of the distal radius. This case illustrates that PSMA expression may occur in healing bone fractures in the distal radius. It can be assumed that benign causes of tracer accumulations in the upper extremities are missed in PET/CT due to elevated position of th...
Wide-awake local anesthesia no tourniquet (WALANT) is used for various hand surgeries, but there are no reports of its use for distal radius fractures. The authors compared perioperative variables and clinical outcomes for volar plating for distal radius fractures with WALANT vs general anesthesia with tourniquet. This retrospective study included 47 patients who presented with distal radius fractures between January 2015 and February 2017. Twenty-one underwent surgical volar plating with WALANT, and 26 und...
The aim of the present study was to assess the effectiveness of surgical treatment of distal radial fractures following open reduction and fixation with an angle-stable plate in relation to the type of injury (flexion vs. extension fracture).
To examine the cost of care of surgical treatment for a distal radius fracture (DRF) and develop episodes that may be used to develop future bundled payment programs.
Multiple randomized trials have showed equivalent outcomes and improved patient/family satisfaction using a removable brace to treat pediatric distal radius buckle fractures (DRBF). We tested the hypothesis that we could use quality improvement (QI) methodology to increase the proportion of patients with DRBF treated with removable braces at 2 tertiary care orthopaedic clinics from a baseline of 34.8% to 80%.
In many academic medical centers, resident physicians typically write initial opioid prescriptions, but little is known about their prescribing practices. We hypothesized that lower resident postgraduate year, residency-training program, and noncompletion of an opioid prescribing training would be factors associated with increased opioid prescribing by orthopedic residents after open reduction and internal fixation of distal radius fractures.
Monteggia lesion is a well-known injury that constitutes 0.7% of forearm fractures-dislocations. The combined presentation of Monteggia injury with ipsilateral distal radius fracture is an extremely rare lesion, especially in adults.
To evaluate the influence of pain sensitization in the early recovery of distal radius fractures (DRFs) on the occurrence and prognosis of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) type I.
We observed an unusual type of volar Barton fracture in the pediatric age and performed open reduction and internal fixation of the fragment, using the buttress plate in consecutive children. We report the radiological and clinical outcomes after follow-up for at least 3 years. From March 2008 to September 2014, nine consecutive children were treated by buttress plating. Their mean age at the time of injury was 13.1 years. All of the fractures were metaphyseal fractures in the coronal plane and typical Salt...
Distal radius physeal fractures are common in pediatric patients. Although most of these fractures heal without complication, some result in significant physeal arrest. If significant physeal arrest occurs, the various treatment methods can be applied depending on the severity of deformity and remaining growth of the patient.
Wrist fractures can be difficult to treat due to advanced age of the patient, medical co-morbidities, and comminution of the bone. This study examines the effectiveness of two injectable glass polyalkenoate cements (GPCs), derived from two different glasses (A and B), as minimally invasive treatments for distal radius fractures. Twenty-seven fresh cadaveric radial pairs were tested either in compressive fatigue or to quasi-static compressive failure. The radii tested to failure had one pair fixated with ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of anatomic variations in distal radius radiographic indices in patients with or without scaphoid fractures.
