Galeazzi Fractures

InMalgaigne described the mechanism of injury for distal end radius fractures distao can be caused by falling on the outstretched hand or on the back of the hand, and also the consequences if the hand fracture is not treated adequately. Retrieved from ” https: Swelling and displacement can cause compression on the median nerve radiicubital results in acute carpal tunnel syndrome and requires prompt treatment. Incidences in females outnumber incidences in males by a factor of three to two.

What structure is most radkocubital impeding the reduction? Distal radius fractures are often associated with distal radial ulnar joint DRUJ injuries, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends that postreduction lateral wrist X-rays should be obtained in all patients with distal radius fractures in order to preclude DRUJ injuries or dislocations.

Compartment syndrome increased risk with high energy crush injury open fractures vascular injuries or coagulopathies diagnosis pain with passive stretch is most sensitive Neurovascular injury uncommon except t ype III open fractures Refracture usually occurs following plate removal increased risk with removing plate too early large plates 4.

It is measured clinically. There is no difference in functional outcomes between operative and non-operative management in the elderly age group, despite better anatomical results in the operative group.


Although the nonsurgical group exhibited greater anatomic misalignment such as radial deviation, and ulnar variance, these changes did not seem to have significant impact on overall pain and quality of life.

During operative treatment of the fracture, anatomic reduction of the radius is achieved. Is a cast as useful as a splint in the treatment of a distal radius fracture in a child”. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Perform open reduction and internal fixation frctura the radius, then assess the distal radioulnar joint for instability, and reconstruct the distal radioulnar joint with a looped palmaris longus autograft if instability persists.

Core Tested Community All. Fractures and cartilage injuries Sx2— Symptomatic malunion may require additional surgery. L8 – 10 years in practice.

Please vote below and help us build the most advanced adaptive learning platform in medicine. Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials”.

These attempt fixation rigid enough to allow almost immediate mobility, in an effort to minimize stiffness and improve ultimate function; no improved radiiocubital outcome from early mobilization prior to 6 weeks after surgical fixation has been shown. Pain medicationelevation [1]. Proximal Supracondylar Holstein—Lewis fracture. If the fracture is still undisplaced, cast and splint can be applied for three weeks. Symptoms pain, swelling, deformity Physical exam point tenderness over fracture site ROM test forearm supination and pronation for instability DRUJ stress causes wrist or midline forearm pain.


If the wrist is bent back less, then proximal forearm fracture would occur, but if the bending back is more, then the carpal bones fracture would occur. Treatment options for distal radius fractures include nonoperative management, external fixation, and internal fixation. It is a type of distal radius fracture. The Journal of hand surgery.

Structures at risk include the triangular fibrocartilage complex and the scapholunate ligament. Retrieved 18 October About one week back patient again presented with broken implant and non union What should be further treatment plan. Risk of injury increases in those with osteoporosis.

Distal radius fracture – Wikipedia

If the fracture affects the median nerveonly then is a reduction indicated. Duverney fracture Pipkin fracture. Malunionhowever, is not uncommon, and can lead to residual pain, grip weakness, reduced range of motion especially rotationand persistent deformity.

These scoring systems measures the ability of a person to perform a task, pain score, presence of tingling and numbness, the effect on activities of daily living, and self-image. There is an increased risk of interosseous intercarpal injury if the fracrura variance the difference in height between the distal end of the ulna and the distal end of the radius is more than 2mm and there is fracture into the wrist joint. The alignment of the DRUJ is also important, as this can be a source of a pain and loss of rotation after final healing and maximum recovery.
