radio radial fractures

Carlotta Pari, Agnese Puzzo, Stefania Paderni, Alberto Belluati
The annular ligament has a crucial role in the radial head stability and  it is critical to the proper functioning of the proximal  radio-capitellar joint. Its chronic injury may lead to radial head instability, elbow pain with decrease in motion and valgus deformity. Method: We present the case of a 53-year-old heavy laborer who reported a complex trauma of the right upper limb with a Floating Elbow Injury, associated to an open Monteggia fracture-dislocation. One month later, despite the definitive fixation with plates of  both the forearm and the supracondylar fractures, X-rays showed the persistence of the radial head dislocation...

The appropriate management of early treatment failures in patients with elbow injuries requires the identification of the cause of failure. In this work, six types of elbow injury are considered: (i) identification of early failed reduction of a dislocation or fracture-dislocation of the elbow should lead to a repeat reduction procedure, testing for elbow instability, and ligament repair, followed by the use of a hinged external fixator to allow early mobilisation. Differentiating an isolated dislocation from a dislocation combined with a fracture of the coracoid process is crucial...

OBJECTIVE: The management of MasonII fracture pattern assisted by arthroscopy is a valid technique that provides good results. The objective of this study was to draw attention to the usefulness of the location of the fracture in the head of the radius in defined quadrants with respect to the bicipital tuberosity through CT. This would help to plan the optimal forearm position to access each quadrant and foresee the specific difficulties of each one. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We dissected 4 specimens of cryopreserved cadaver...

INTRODUCTION: The standard therapy of intra-articular and extra-articular distal radius fractures consists of open reduction and stabilization using palmar osteosynthesis with an angularly stable plate. The integrity of the flexor pollicis longus tendon (FPLT) may be mechanically affected by the plate, with rupture rates between 1 and 12% reported in the literature, occurring during a postoperative time period from 4 to 120 months. The aim of this study was to investigate the position of the tendon in relation to the distal edge of the plate using high-resolution ultrasonic imaging...

INTRODUCTION: Outcomes of non-osteoporotic patients who sustained a distal radius fracture (DRF) have not gained much attention in recent literature. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of posttraumatic arthritis (PA), to analyze associations of radiological measurements, clinician-reported and patient-reported outcomes (CROs and PROs) with PA and gain insight into employment changes after DRF in non-osteoporotic patients. METHODS: Non-osteoporotic patients following a DRF were selected...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to evaluate whether volar locking plating can restore the anatomical volar tilt of 12° and the anatomical length of the radius relative to the ulna. We retrospectively reviewed the radio-graphic outcome of distal radius fractures treated with two different first-generation locking plate systems; VariAx (Stryker) and Acu-Loc (Acumed). METHODS: Three independent observers evaluated radial volar tilt and ulnar variance (> 2 mm) on radiographs taken preoperatively, immediately after the operation and five weeks later...

Background: When approaching radial head and neck fractures, the decision for ORIF, resection, or arthroplasty is often performed intraoperatively. Factors that contribute include ligamentous and bony stability, cartilage injury, mechanical alignment as well as patient factors. Recent data has suggested conventional methods may not be sufficiently sensitive in detecting Essex Lopresti injuries. Here we describe an intraoperative technique that could objectively assess proximal radio-ulnar stability with subsequent disruption of the ligamentous structures...

BACKGROUND: Volar locking plating through the flexor carpi radialis is a well-established technique for treating unstable distal radial fractures, with few reported complications. In certain circumstances, including metaphyseal comminuted fractures, bridge plating through a pronator quadratus (PQ)-sparing approach may be required to preserve the soft tissue envelope. This study describes our prospective experience with bridge plating through indirect reduction. METHODS: Thirty-three wrists (four 23A2, six 23A3, 15 23C1, and eight 23C2) underwent bridge plating through a PQ-sparing approach with indirect reduction from June 2006 to December 2010...

OBJECTIVES: Our primary aim was to evaluate the distribution and severity of cartilage damage in a sample of patients with scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse (SNAC), assessed on MDCT arthrography, with regard to two well-known SNAC staging systems. Secondarily, we wanted to see if the degree of cartilage damage varied with the location of the nonunion. METHODS: We retrospectively included 35 patients with a history of SNAC who had undergone MDCT arthrography. The location of the fracture was defined as the proximal, middle, or distal third of the scaphoid...

BACKGROUND We aimed to evaluate the clinical and radiologic outcomes of using Sonoma WRx versus Micronail intramedullary nailing for the fixation of distal radius fractures. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 68 patients with primarily extra-articular and simple intra-articular fractures of the distal radius who underwent intramedullary distal radius fixation using Sonoma WRx (n=39) or Micronail (n=29) intramedullary nails were enrolled in the study. The clinical outcome measures included the range of motion (ROM), visual analog scale (VAS), functional outcomes (patient-reported Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand [DASH] score and clinician-based Gartland-Werley score), radiographic scores (Stewart score), and parameters related to the quality of radiographic reduction and complications (radial inclination, volar tilt, radial height, and radio-ulnar variance)...

The Essex-Lopresti injury is an extremely rare condition combining radial head or neck fracture, distal radio-ulnar joint dislocation and rupture of the interosseous membrane. However, there are rare or unusual varieties or associated injuries. We report a case of a 46-year-old woman with a posterior dislocation of the radio-humeral joint, a radial shaft fracture, and a distal radio-ulnar joint dislocation. She underwent open reduction and internal fixation of the radial shaft fracture followed by an immobilization by a long elbow splint in supination for 6 weeks...

Neglected Monteggia fracture dislocation is one of the challenging case and it becomes more of a therapeutic dilemma especially in adults. Several surgical techniques are described and in spite of this complication rate following surgery is high. This report concerns with management of three-month-old monteggia fracture dislocation in a 30-year-old male. Patient presented with complete loss of movement at elbow. Patient was managed surgically, with internal fixation of ulna and reduction of radial head with radio-capitellar Kirschner wires...

BACKGROUND: Die-punch intra-articular fractures of the distal radius raise surgical challenges. The residual articular step-off must be less than 1mm to prevent the development of radio-carpal osteoarthritis. The objectives of this cadaver study were to evaluate whether cementoplasty was effective in reducing die-punch fractures and to determine whether this technique was feasible as an arthroscopic procedure. HYPOTHESIS: Cementoplasty performed as an arthroscopic procedure is effective in treating die-punch fractures...

We report our 11-year experience of performing arthroscopically assisted triangular fibrocartilage complex reconstruction in the treatment of chronic distal radio-ulnar joint instability resulting from irreparable triangular fibrocartilage complex injuries. Eleven patients were treated. Three skin incisions were made in order to create radial and ulna tunnels for passage of the tendon graft, which is used to reconstruct the dorsal and palmar radio-ulnar ligaments, under fluoroscopic and arthroscopic guidance...

Reformatted magnetic resonance imaging scans of 27 normal wrists were examined in incremental degrees of rotation around the central axis of the radial shaft to 30° in both directions from true lateral. A line was superimposed on the outer border of the radial dorsal cortex and continued distally to the carpal region. Measurements were made from the superior pole of the lunate to this line. This distance did not change significantly with rotation. This allows a quick and accurate way of assessing distal radial fracture reduction from poorly taken lateral radiographs...

BACKGROUND: Long-term outcomes of radial head resection for radial head fracture have shown mixed outcomes, depending on the integrity of the soft-tissue stabilizers of the elbow, forearm, and wrist. METHODS: We report a case of a symptomatic delayed proximal migration of the radius after radial head excision for radial neck nonunion which was managed with a staged radial head replacement. Informed consent was obtained from the individual in this case report. RESULTS: At 7 months after radial head replacement, the patient had 90 degrees of forearm supination and 85 degrees of pronation...

Radial head fractures are fairly common (20% of all traumatic elbow injuries). Non-operative treatment is indicated in non-displaced fractures, and direct stable internal fixation allowing early elbow mobilisation in most other cases. For severely comminuted fractures precluding stable fixation, replacement of the radial head was introduced in the 1970s as a better alternative to simple radial head resection, which can induce instability of the elbow and/or forearm, most notably in patients who have complex fractures with concomitant lesions to other structures...

OBJECTIVE: Radial corrective osteotomy is an established but challenging treatment for distal radial malunion. There is an ongoing discussion about whether an opening or closing-wedge osteotomy between should employed. The purpose of the present study was to retrospectively compare the clinical and radio graphic results between conventional opening-wedge osteotomy and closing-wedge technique. METHODS: From January 2004 and December 2012,42 patients with extra-articular distal radial malunion were managed with corrective osteotomy and were followed for a minimum of one year...
