The majority of distal radius fractures are treated with conservative nonoperative management, which involves immobilization through application of plaster or splint with or without closed reduction. Variations in immobilization techniques involve the type of cast, position of immobilization, and the length of time required in the cast.

However, the surgeon is unable to reduce the distal radioulnar joint. Swelling, deformity, tenderness, and loss of wrist motion are normal features on examination of a person with a distal radius fracture. In children, the outcome of distal radius fracture treatment in casts is usually very successful with healing and return to normal function expected.

Pain, bruising, and swelling of the wrist [1]. An arthroscope can be used at the time of fixation to evaluate for soft-tissue injury. The Journal of Trauma: For those with low demand, cast and splint can be applied for two weeks. L6 – years frwctura practice. Pain medicationelevation [1].


Distal radius fracture

However, neutral and dorsiflex position may not affect the stability of the fracture. People who fall on the outstretched hand are usually fitter and have better reflexes when compared to those with elbow or humerus fractures.

Proximal Supracondylar Radiocubihal fracture. Anaesthesiaaseptic techniqueimmbolization, and external fixation all have contributed to the management of fixation of distal radius fracture.

Retrieved 18 October Risk of injury increases in those with osteoporosis. In the elderly, distal radius fractures heal and fractira result in adequate function following nonoperative treatment. Avulsion fracture Chalkstick fracture Greenstick fracture Open fracture Pathologic fracture Spiral fracture. The characteristics of distal radius fractures are influenced by the position of the hand at the time of impact, the type of surface at point of contact, the speed of the impact, and the strength dsital the bone.

Inwith the advent of X-rays, the visualisation of the distal radius fracture become more apparent.

In people over 60, functional impairment can last for more than 10 years. Various kinds of information can be obtained from X-rays of the wrist: Recovery over 1 to 2 years [1].


In those who are young and active, if the fracture is not displaced, the patient can be followed up in one week. HPI – Patient sustained galeazzi fracture right radius 8months back.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Distal radius fractures are common. The cast is usually maintained for about 6 weeks. In displaced distal radius fracture, in those with low demands, the hand can be cast until the person feels comfortable.

However, an above-elbow cast may cause long-term rotational contracture. Examples of scoring system based on clinical assessment are: Colles’ fractureSmith’s fractureBarton’s fractureHutchinson fracture [2]. Both scoring systems show good reliability and validity. Two newer treatment are fragment-specific fixation and fixed-angle volar plating.

Any radiocubitall in the limb of the same side should also be investigated to exclude associated injuries to the same limb. Educational video describing the condition known as Galeazzi Fracture. Rib fracture Sternal fracture.
