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.

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 ...

Dynasplint for Distal Radius Fracture

The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy of dynamic splinting as a therapeutic modality in reducing contracture following surgical treatment of distal radius fractures.

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...

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...

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)
