Anterior Plate Osteosynthesis of Fractures of the Lower Extremity of the Radius: Does the Systematic Use of Short Epiphysic Screws Limit the Posterior Protrusion of the Screws Without Compromising Stability

2019-09-24 05:27:31 | BioPortfolio


Anterior plate osteosynthesis of fractures of the lower extremity of the radius may be accompanied by tendinous complications : tenosynovitis of extensors or even tendon ruptures caused by the end of the epiphyseai screws.

The intraoperative measurements as well as the realization of the scopic pictures make it possible to estimate the length of the screws but the tendinous lesions remain frequent (5 to 15% according to the various series)


- Preoperative consultation

- Oral information of the patient of the protocol and delivery of the written information note

- Seeking patient's non-opposition to participating in the study

- Inclusion of the patient

- Surgical procedure for distal radius fracture + immediate post-operative radiography

- Intervention performed according to the usual practices of the service by the surgeon of the day without randomization

- Radiography: 2 shots: face and wrist profile

- Control X-ray + consultation

- Achieved at 3 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months after the intervention

- X-rays: 2 shots: face and wrist profile

- Control ultrasound o Realized at 3 months after the intervention

End of participation in the study after consultation of 3 months.

Complications in Distal Radius Fracture

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 ...

Isolated Distal Ulna Fracture With Distal Radioulnar Joint Dislocation: A Novel Fracture Pattern.

Galeazzi fractures composed of a middle to distal third radius fracture with dislocation and/or instability at the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) have been well described for decades. However, the inv...

Corrective osteotomy of distal radius malunion after IIIB open fracture: Palmar approach - Case report.

Despite the fact that distal radius fractures are the most common, open fractures are relatively uncommon. The aim of this study is to present the case with severe malunion of extra-articular left dis...

Long-term functional outcome of distal radius fractures is associated with early post-fracture bone stiffness of the fracture region: An HR-pQCT exploratory study.

Identifying determinants of long-term functional outcome after a distal radius fracture is challenging. Previously, we reported on the association between early HR-pQCT measurements and clinical outco...
