A Study Examining The Effect Of Wrist Joint Haematoma Washout As An Adjunct Procedure To Plating Of The Distal Radius In Fractures Of The Distal Radius Involving The Wrist Joint

Intra-articular fractures of the distal radius are common in urban populations and result in significant morbidity in terms of time away from work. Volar plating of the distal radius is a ...

Distal Radius Fracture: Clinical Outcome After Conservative Treatment in the Elder Patient

This study is performed to evaluate the outcome of conservative treatment after distal radius fractures in patients of 65 years or older at the time of the injury, primarily with respect t...

Operative Treatment of Intra-Articular Distal Radius Fractures With Versus Without Wrist Arthroscopy

Open reduction and internal fixation of intra-articular distal radius fractures leads to better functional outcomes the first 6 months compared to non-operative treatment. However, some pa...

Implementation of the Dart-throwing Motion Plane in Hand Therapy After Distal Radius Fractures

Rehabilitation following wrist fractures often includes exercising flexion-extension. However, during daily functions, our wrist moves through an oblique plane, named the Dart Throwing Mot...

Effects of Ulnar Styloid and Sigmoid Notch Fractures on Postoperative Wrist Function of Distal Radius Fracture Patients

To study the effects of ulnar styloid and sigmoid notch fractures on postoperative wrist function in patients with distal radius fracture

Demographics, fracture patterns and treatment strategies following wrist trauma.

The objective of this study was to determine the percentage of radiographs which showed a fracture of the wrist. Secondary, the fracture characteristics and the received treatment were determined. Add...

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...

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...

If there is smoke, there must be fire - Isolated distal, non-displaced, intraarticular ulna fracture: A case report.

Falling on the outstretched arm is a frequent trauma. The consequences can be isolated fractures of the distal radius, combined fractures of the distal radius and distal ulna - whereas the isolated fr...

The Amsterdam Wrist Rules to reduce the need for radiography after a suspected distal radius fracture: an implementation study.

While most patients with wrist trauma are routinely referred for radiography, around 50% of these radiographs show no fracture. To avoid unnecessary radiographs, the Amsterdam Wrist Rules (AWR) have p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

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.

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)

Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
