Low-level Laser Therapy on Distal Radius Fractures

Conservative treatment of distal radius fracture is immobilisation with cast for 4-6 weeks. After removing the cast, it is common to still have pain, swelling and reduced mobility in the wrist. The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of LLLT on the hand.

Anterior Plate Osteosynthesis of Fractures of the Lower Extremity of the Radius: Does the Systematic Use of Short Epiphysic Screws Limit the Posterior Protrusion of the Screws Without Compromising Stability

Anterior plate osteosynthesis of fractures of the lower extremity of the radius may be accompanied by tendinous complications : tenosynovitis of extensors or even tendon ruptures caused by the end of the epiphyseai screws. The intraoperative measurements as well as the realization of the scopic pictures make it possible to estimate the length of the screws but the tendinous lesions remain frequent (5 to 15% according to the various series)

Acute Effects of Interferential Current on Edema, Pain and Muscle Strength in Patients With Distal Radius Fracture

Interferential current is a form of electrotherapy that is obtained by placing two different plates that produce medium frequency waveform current, resulting in a low frequency interferential waveform in deeper tissues. It was shown interferential current electrotherapy is beneficial for reduction of traumatic edema in tissues and pain control. Patients with conservatively managed distal radius fractures were recruited after casts are shed, and were treated with one session(30...

Early Motion After Volar Fixation for Distal Radius Fractures

Many surgeons pursue volar plating of the distal radius to allow earlier post-operative wrist motion. Early motion is generally prescribed in the belief that it will result in greater final motion without compromising fixation. However, studies have failed to demonstrate clinically significant improvement in final wrist motion (> 1 year follow up) compared to treatments requiring longer immobilization such as external fixation or bridge plating.

Three Dimensional Digital Preoperative Planning for the Osteosynthesis of Distal Radius Fractures

Background: Three dimensional (3D) digital pre-operative planning software for osteosynthesis of fractures was developed. To assess the usefulness of the 3D planning, we evaluated the accuracy of the reduction shapes and selected implants in the patients with distal radius fractures. Methods: Thirty wrists of 30 distal radius fracture patients who underwent osteosynthesis using volar locking plates were evaluated. Fifteen wrists were treated with 3D preoperative planning...

MRI Study of the Distal Radius Bone Marrow Fat Fraction in Osteoporotic and Healthy Women

The aim of the study is to test whether the distal radius bone marrow show significant difference in the fat fraction in young women compared to post menopausal women with and without osteoporosis.

Volar Locking Plate Versus External Fixator/Cast Fixation for the Treatment of Distal Radius Fractures

Aim: Osteosynthesis with locking plate/screws has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is the only treatment option which allows immediate postoperative immobilization. However, compared to conservative treatment or treatment with external fixators, locking plates are very expensive and the operation can be very challenging, even for experienced surgeons. The long-term results of all treatment modalities are equal, which has been shown in numerous studies. However, t...

Utility of Cortical Bone Tissue Properties in the Assessment of Fracture Risk

The objective of this study is to determine whether a new minimally invasive method for in vivo measurement of cortical bone tissue properties can identify those who are at risk for fragility fractures of the hip and radius. Our hypothesis is that women with fragility fractures of the hip and radius have altered cortical bone tissue properties compared to non-fracture controls independent of standard clinical tests, such as bone mineral density (BMD) by dual-energy x-ray absorp...

Comparison of Volar Locking Plate Fixation Alone and Volar Locking Plate Fixation Plus Calcium Phosphate Bone Cement Augmentation for Distal Radius Fractures Patients Aged More Than 65

The incidence of distal radius fracture (DRF) increases with age, and thus, because of improving life expectancies, these fractures are set to become more common. Fractures of the distal radial metaphysis are known to be strongly related to osteoporosis, and as a result, the management of distal radius fractures in elderly patients is beset with difficulties. Recently, more aggressive fracture fixation in the elderly has become a topic of interest, in the hope of increasing th...

The Effects of Fluidotherapy® Exercise

BACKGROUND: Wrist fractures are a common upper extremity injury treated by hand therapists. Currently, there is a dearth of published literature supporting the use Fluidotherapy® to improve pain and range of motion (ROM) in wrist fracture patients. \OBJECTIVE: This pilot study was conducted to determine the effects of one 15-minute bout of performing active range of motion (AROM) exercises in Fluidotherapy® (EXFT) versus AROM exercises (EX) alone on pain levels and AROM in wr...

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 Motion (DTM) plane. This plane might be a more stable plane in cases of wrist injuries, since the proximal carpal row remains relatively immobile. However, rehabilitation programs that incorporate exercising in the DTM plane have yet to be explored. The researchers aimed to evaluate the rehabili...

Pronator Quadratus Repair After Volar Plating of Distal Radius Fractures

Investigation of the influence of the pronator quadratus (PQ) muscle repair following volar plate fixation of distal radius fractures with regard to the forearm pronation strength. During the early recovery period of 3 months an improvement of pronation strength and functional scorings was hypothesized for the PQ repair when compared to no repair. Randomization of the patients in two groups ( PQ repair and no repair) and follow-up examinations after 6 and 12 weeks included bil...

Operative Treatment of Extraarticular Colles' Fractures of the Distal Radius (OTEC)

This is a prospective, randomized, multi-center pilot study of unstable extraarticular fractures of the distal radius with dorsal displacement of the distal fragment in elderly patients. The patients are randomly assigned to osteosynthesis with palmar locking plate, external fixator, or Kirschner wires. The aim of this pilot study is to allow a sample size calculation for a main randomized controlled trial (RCT). The primary outcome criterion is the functional status measured...

Acupuncture in Distal Radius Fracture Patients

The patients with distal radius fracture treated with immobilization (cast) and percutaneous pinning it will be to able to participate in this randomized trial. The investigators will be able to determine if the laser acupuncture is a good therapy for the rehabilitation in this type of patients. And if they are more comfortable to begin his rehabilitation exercise after the application of this therapy

Rebound Pain After Operations for Distal Radius Fractures With a Volar Plate in Brachial Plexus Block

Many patients have strong pain at brachial plexus block resolution after operations for distal radius fractures with a volar plate. This study investigates if a single dose of dexamethasone in addition to a standard pain regime have an effect on postoperative pain. The primary endpoint is difference in the highest pain score first 24 hours after surgery. The investigators will also look at pain scores and analgesics consumption first few hours after surgery and at different tim...

Long Term Follow up of the DVR-A Locking Plate

The surgical treatment of wrist fractures (distal radius bone) has been changed by the introduction of a new plate design, the locking plate. This results in improved fixation and stabilisation of the fracture fragments allowing early movement. This type of plate has been increasingly used throughout the world but questions have been raised regarding the potential complications of the surgery, particularly nerve and tendon injury. The Norfolk and Norwich Hospital has treated ...

Defining Displacement Thresholds for Surgical Intervention for Distal Radius Fractures - a Delphi Study

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. Many studies have been carried out but there is no strong evidence to answer these questions. We are carrying out a Delphi study which involves seeking consensus from experts at treating these injuries about the best way to manage them. UK and international expert surgeons will take part in thr...

Minimally Invasive Closed Reduction and Internal Fixation With Screws for Distal Radius Fracture

The purpose of this study is to confirm that minimally invasive closed reduction and internal fixation with fully threaded headless cannulated compression screws for distal radius fracture repair has advantages over conventional open reduction internal fixation with titanium plates, providing superior fragment stability and allowing for early rehabilitation exercise of the wrist joint, which improves recovery of function. Also to show that minimally invasive closed reduction an...

Distal Radius Buckle Fracture RCT

This study evaluates the influence of cost information on decision-making for immobilization for treatment of distal radial buckle fractures. Half of the participants will receive cost information from an orthopaedic surgeon prior to making their decision for treatment, while the other half will receive cost information from another member of the study team after they had made their decision treatment.

Referred Pain Areas in Subjects With a Recovered Radius Fracture

The purpose of the present study is to investigate pressure algometry and pressure-induced referred pain areas in pain free individuals with a history of distal radius fracture (fully recovered) compared with age and gender matched healthy controls without history of fracture. It is hypothesized that individuals with a recovered radius fracture will have a facilitated referred pain patter towards the wrist but normal pressure pain sensitivity.

The Short Term Effect of Hot Packs and Whirlpool for Increasing Total Active Motion at the Wrist

This study investigates the effect of hot packs versus whirlpool and exercise for patients with distal radius fracture (DRF). Patients with recently healed DRF are randomized into two groups, with one group receiving hot packs during therapy and the other immersing the arm in a whirlpool for 3 consecutive therapy visits. The effect of these modalities on range of motion and volume of the hand are evaluated, with measurements taking place before and immediately after heat during...

Comparison of Three Fixation Techniques for Displaced Distal Radius Fractures

Distal radius fractures are the most common fracture to occur in the adult population, and those which are displaced but maintain joint congruity are the most common subtype. Locking-plate technology represents a true advance in the fixation of these fractures, especially in view of the ever increasing incidence of these injuries in an ageing and osteoporotic population throughout Europe and North America. These plates permit rigid fixation, even in osteopenic bone, while avoid...

Study design: Two consecutive prospective case series. Study population: Part 1 will enroll 10 healthy volunteers (50 years or older). Part 2 will enroll 10 elderly patients (50 years or older) with a dorsally displaced distal radius fracture (AO type 23-A-C) that is acceptably reduced. In both parts, participants should have no restrictions in activities of daily living pre-fracture and no evident anatomical difference between both wrists. Intervention: Part 1: Partici...

Effects of Early Manual Therapy on Functional Outcomes After Volar Plating of Distal Radius Fractures

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of early manual therapy on function, pain, range of motion (ROM), hand and pinch grip strength and disability level in patients underwent volar plating after distal radius fracture (DRF). Patients were randomly divided into two groups: Routin Physiotherapy (RP) or Early Manual Therapy (EMT). While RP group received routine physiotherapy, EMT group received routine physiotherapy plus Mulligan's Mobilization With Movement techni...

Fixation of Unstable Distal Radius Fractures

Wrist fractures are the most common type of fractures that occur in the shoulder, arm, and hand. Approximately 250,000 to 300,000 wrist fractures occur in the United States each year. Although some wrist fractures can be treated using casts, many other fractures must be treated with surgery. The surgery involves using metal plates and screws to put the broken pieces of bone together so that they can heal. The purpose of this study is to compare two specific types of surgery...
