Distal Radius Fractures closed treatement and cast application popular

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/bfc/rutl2/exp.htm

The indication to perform closed reduction could be a definitive treatment for an uncomplicated Colles wrist fracture. Closed reduction may be applied to more complicated fractures followed by a post-reduction re-assessment of the fracture configuration to decide if the fracture needs further treatment. Expert

2011 Low bone mineral density is a significant risk factor for low-energy distal radius fractures in middle-aged and elderly men

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/67/abstract

Conclusion: The results from our study indicate that reduced BMD is an important risk factor for low-energy distal radius fracture in men. This suggests that improvement of BMD by both pharmacological and non-pharmacological initiatives may be a strategy to reduce fracture risk in men.
Low bone mineral density is a significant...

Are classifications of proximal radius fractures reproducible

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/10/120/abstract

Fractures of the proximal radius need to be classified in an appropriate and reproducible manner. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the three most widely used classification systems.
Conclusion Inter- and intra-observer agreement of the Mason and Morey classifications showed overall satisfactory reliability when compared to the...

Carpal instability malunion among complications of distal radius fracture

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=23484

Many complications exist regarding distal radius fractures and the exact rates of these complications remain unknown. Yet, as techniques for distal radius fractures advance, some surgeons hold that they will see a drop in the incidence of these complications. “I think ultimately, many of the complications related to conservative nonsurgical management...

Cartilage injuries in distal radial fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12899554

Subchondral hematomas have been found with arthroscopy in one third of patients with dislocated distal radial fractures. The aim of the present, prospective study was to determine whether these hematomas might cause radiographic osteoarthrosis. We studied 41 patients (age 20-57 years, 22 women) with a dislocated distal radial fracture. At...

Chauffeur's Fracture Radial Styloid Fractures Wheeless

Location: http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/chauffeurs_fracture_radial_styloid_fractures

radial styloid fractures most commonly occur from tension forces sustained during ulnar deviation and supination of the wrist;
- strong radiocarpal ligament, particularly radioscaphocapitate ligament, avulse radial styloid from metaphysis of the radius;
- ligamentous attachments maintains alignment radial styloid to carpus, but...

Closed Reduction of Distal Radius Fractures

Location: http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/closed_reduction_of_distal_radius_fractures

Closed reduction & immobilization in plaster cast remains accepted method of treatment for majority of stable distal radius fractures;
- unstable fractures will often lose reduction in the cast and will slip back to the pre-reduction position;
- patients should be examined for carpal tunnel symptoms before and after reduction;
- carpal...
