Summary

Distal radius fractures are treated surgically if severely displaced. This study aims to investigate the outcome after surgery. The investigators will randomize patients to either external fixation with optional addition of k-wires or open reduction and fixation with a volar plate.

Volar Plating or External Fixation of Dorsally Displaced Fractures of the Distal Radius?

Promising results have been reported after volar locked plating of unstable dorsally displaced fractures of the distal radius. It offers stable fixation and early mobilization. The investi...

Unstable Fractures of the Distal Radius: Randomised Controlled Trial of Volar Plate Versus Dorsal Nail Plate Fixation

Fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common orthopaedic injuries and are associated with a high complication rate. There is a lack of clinical trials comparing the different ...

Comparison of Three Fixation Techniques for Displaced Distal Radius Fractures

Distal radius fractures are the most common fracture to occur in the adult population, and those which are displaced but maintain joint congruity are the most common subtype. Locking-plate...

Outcome Study of Complex Distal Radius Fractures

The purpose of this study is to collect information about how people do after different treatments of a broken wrist to see if one treatment has better results.

Flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture by sandwiched underlying volar locking plate and distal radius.

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 edg...

A comparison of corrective osteotomies using dorsal and volar fixation for malunited distal radius fractures.

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.

Distal Clavicle Fractures: Open Reduction and Internal Fixation With a Hook Plate.

Displaced distal clavicle fractures pose unique challenges because of their propensity for instability. In particular, type II fracture patterns are associated with high rates of nonunion with nonoper...

Dual Radial Styloid and Volar Plating for Unstable Fractures of the Distal Radius.

As the operative management of displaced distal radius fractures evolves, intraoperative techniques and fixation strategies evolve as well. Achieving and maintaining an acceptable reduction is paramou...

Prospective study of comminuted articular distal radius fractures stabilized by volar plating in the elderly.

The objective was to assess the ability of the volar locking plate to maintain the radiographic parameters over the time in elderly patients with complex intra-articular distal radius fractures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A thick, fibrocartilaginous ligament at the metacarpophalageal joint.

Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.

The region in the dorsal ECTODERM of a chordate embryo that gives rise to the future CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Tissue in the neural plate is called the neuroectoderm, often used as a synonym of neural plate.

A bone fixation technique using an external fixator (FIXATORS, EXTERNAL) for lengthening limbs, correcting pseudarthroses and other deformities, and assisting the healing of otherwise hopeless traumatic or pathological fractures and infections, such as chronic osteomyelitis. The method was devised by the Russian orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992). (From Bull Hosp Jt Dis 1992 Summer;52(1):1)

Incomplete rupture of the zonule with the displaced lens remaining behind the pupil. In dislocation, or complete rupture, the lens is displaced forward into the anterior chamber or backward into the vitreous body. When congenital, this condition is known as ECTOPIA LENTIS.
