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...
To study the effects of ulnar styloid and sigmoid notch fractures on postoperative wrist function in patients with 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 ...
This study evaluates the effect of 10% magnesium sulfate in the rehabilitation of the wrist mobility in patients with distal radius fracture treated with percutaneous pinning and plaster
Wrist (distal radius fractures) are very common injuries. Despite this there is still much controversy about the best way to treat them and in particular which ones require intervention. M...
Radial shaft convergence in distal radius fractures is often misdiagnosed. This common deformation is often associated with a radial translation of the distal fragment. This parameter has to be correc...
Distal radius fracture (DRF) is a common injury. Treatment options have evolved and now several can be used to address even the most complex fracture patterns. Complex fractures of the distal radius a...
The distal radius fracture represent until 15% of all bone injuries in adults. The key in the recovery of mobility and functional outcomes are rehabilitation. The intra-articular application of magnes...
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...
A major concern for patients following distal radius fracture fixation is when they can resume driving. This decision has medical, legal, and safety considerations, but there are no evidence-based gu...
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.
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...
