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.
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.
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.
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.
Flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon rupture is a major complication of volar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures. The tendon rupture is usually caused by friction between the distal edge of the plate and the FPL tendon, and has been well detected recently with ultrasonography. Rarely, the volar locking plate itself entraps the FPL tendon, leading to its rupture. A 63-year-old man was consistently unable to flex his right thumb after previous surgery for a distal radius fracture at another hos...
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.
Areal bone mineral density (aBMD) poorly identifies men at high fracture risk. Our aim was to assess prediction of fractures in men by bone microarchitectural measures. At baseline, 825 men aged 60-87 had the assessment of bone microarchitecture at distal radius and distal tibia by high resolution peripheral QCT (HR-pQCT, XtremeCT-I SCANCO). Bone strength was estimated by micro-finite element analysis. During the prospective 8-year follow-up, 105 men sustained fractures (59 vertebral fractures in 49 men, 70...
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...
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.
This study aimed to compare clinical results and to restore radiographic parameters of corrective osteotomy for malunited distal radius fracture using a volar locking plate with a dorsal plate.
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%.
There is not enough evidence in the literature to support the use of any classification system for distal radius fractures (DRF) in adults. However, there is a need for identification of more homogeneous groups of patients with DRF so that the extent of preoperative workup and sophistication of treatment would best match the needs of the patient. The authors propose an innovative method to analyse and stratify acute DRF in adults. A one-page chart includes criteria related to the patient (P), the energy of ...
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.
The case of a patient suffering from Alzheimer's disease who sustained epiphyseal, severely dislocated fractures of the distal radius and ulna is reported. As the patient was incapacitated and attempts to contact her curator failed, the decision was made on a conservative treatment of the fractures. This treatment eventually failed and resulted in malunion with exposure of bone fragments above the skin. After obtaining informed consent from her curator, a corrective osteotomy was performed using an original...
