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.
Distal radius fractures are one of the most common fractures in the upper extremity. The purpose of this review is to outline common complications that may arise when caring for distal radius fractures and to describe the treatment strategies when faced with such complications.
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...
Isolated ulnar shortening osteotomies can be used to treat ulnocarpal abutment secondary to radial shortening following distal radius fractures. Given the increase of fragility distal radius fractures awareness of treating the sequelae of distal radius fractures is important. We present the largest reported case series in the UK of ulnar shortening osteotomies for this indication.
To investigate whether a conventional fracture hematoma block (FHB) or an ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block has more superior analgesic effect during nonoperative management of distal radius fractures in an emergency department setting. Two peripheral nerve block types were investigated, one at the level of the elbow, or cubital nerve block (CNB), and another an axillary nerve block (ANB).
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.
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.
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.
Distal radius fractures are common upper extremity injuries requiring surgical treatment. In the context of management with a volar locking plate (VLP), a number of described techniques assist with restoration of individual anatomical parameters such as radial length, volar tilt, and articular congruity. We present a surgical technique that utilizes a large tenaculum bone clamp to provide an efficacious reduction in several planes. With anteroposterior compression, the clamp enables volar translation of the...
Social deprivation has been shown to be associated with increased incidence of many types of fracture but the causes for this have not been established. The aim of this study was to establish if distal radius fracture was associated with deprivation and investigate reasons for this.
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.
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).
In the elderly, low energy distal femur fractures (native or periprosthetic) can be devastating injuries, carrying high rates of morbidity and mortality, comparable to the hip fracture population. Poor, osteoporotic bone quality facilitates fracture in a vulnerable anatomic region and as a result, operative fixation can be challenging. With goals of early mobilization to reduce subsequent complication risk, employing the nail plate combination (NPC) technique can offer stable, balanced fixation allowing for...
There is a concern that bisphosphonates may impair fracture healing because of their inhibitory effects on bone turnover. Here we evaluated the effects of early bisphosphonate therapy on fracture healing and functional outcome following a fracture of the distal radius. The fracture and bisphosphonates (FAB) trial was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 15 trauma centers in the United Kingdom. We enrolled 421 bisphosphonate-naive patients aged ≥50 years with a radiographically co...
Outcomes of non-osteoporotic patients who sustained a distal radius fracture (DRF) have not gained much attention in recent literature. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of posttraumatic arthritis (PA), to analyze associations of radiological measurements, clinician-reported and patient-reported outcomes (CROs and PROs) with PA and gain insight into employment changes after DRF in non-osteoporotic patients.
This case report describes the osteosynthetic treatment and postoperative course of a fracture of the capitulum humeri and a concomitant fracture of the head of the radius with a follow-up over 3 months. Simultaneous fractures of the capitulum humeri and the head of the radius are rare injuries of the elbow. Due to the complex anatomical relationships this type of fracture poses a big challenge for treating traumatologists.
Tibial plafond, or pilon, fractures can be some of the most difficult fractures to manage. As they are often associated with high-energy trauma, both the soft tissue involvement and the comminuted fracture pattern pose challenges to fixation. Furthermore, the complex anatomy and trauma to the cartilage at the time of injury predispose pilon fractures to poor functional outcomes and high rates of posttraumatic arthritis. This review will discuss the recent developments in the treatment of tibial pilon fractu...
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...
Unusual combination of elbow dislocation with a retained intraarticular fragment and trochlear fracture and ipsilateral distal radius fracture in an amateur snowboarder: A case report and review of literatures.
The most common damage caused by snowboarding is wrist injury. However, Elbow injuries are relatively rare. In general, elbow dislocation with ipsilateral distal radius fracture is also very rare.
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.
Osteomalacia is a bone disease caused by impaired skeletal mineralization. Vitamin D dependent types have to be distinguished from hypophosphatemic forms. Typical signs and symptoms include diffuse bone pain, muscle weakness and fragility fractures. The fracture pattern in osteomalacia is typically different from that of osteoporosis. Fragility fractures of the pelvis, sacrum, distal parts of the foot, proximal tibia and ribs are indicators for osteomalacia, whereas femoral neck and vertebral fractures (w...
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the use of the Less Invasive Stabilization System (LISS) plate for distal femoral fractures, examining variables such as type of fracture and length of plate. A retrospective study of 30 patients with a distal femoral fracture, treated with a distal femur LISS plate (Synthes) was performed. Average age was 71 years old (20-101). According to the AO classification, 16 fractures were type A, 5 type B, and 9 type C. The consolidation index and clinical outcomes measu...
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.
