BACKGROUND. Distal radius fractures (FRD) are up to 17% of all diagnosed fractures and are the most commonly treated fractures in adult orthopedic patients. The management could be either ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy of dynamic splinting as a therapeutic modality in reducing contracture following surgical treatment of distal radius fractures.
We will be enrolling children with distal radius buckle fractures, treating them with a removable splint and randomizing them to follow up as needed vs required follow up with a primary ca...
The current status of the disease under study. Including natural history, disease prognosis. Distal radial fractures (DRF, distal radius fractures) are the most common fractures, allowing...
For the non-surgical treatment of distal radius fractures in adults a variety cast options are available, including or not the elbow joint. The literature is inconclusive regarding the nee...
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 dista...
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 pote...
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.
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 ...
Prevention of CRPS-1, a post-traumatic pain syndrome, after a distal radius fracture is important as this syndrome might lead to chronic pain and serious disabilities. In several studies, it was shown...
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The joint that is formed by the distal end of the RADIUS, the articular disc of the distal radioulnar joint, and the proximal row of CARPAL BONES; (SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; triquetral bone).
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
A number of ligaments on either side of, and serving as a radius of movement of, a joint having a hingelike movement. They occur at the elbow, knee, wrist, metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and distal interphalangeal joints of the hands and feet. (Stedman, 25th ed)
