Summary

This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of baby talcum in prevent pruritus after cast application in orthopaedic patients.

The investigators will do a randomized controlled trial in patient with fracture distal end of radius treated conservatively.

Pruritus score and satisfaction will be monitor along the entire course of cast retention.

Association of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1, Bone Mass and Inflammation to Low-energy Distal Radius Fractures and Fracture Healing in Elderly Women Attending Emergency Care.

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.

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).

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

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)
