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 ...
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...
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...
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...
To study the effects of ulnar styloid and sigmoid notch fractures on postoperative wrist function in patients with distal radius fracture
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
