Soft tissue complications of distal radius fractures.

Hand Clinics 2010 May
Distal radius fractures account for approximately 15% of all fractures in adults. Care of these fractures is associated with a myriad of complications. This review focuses on the soft tissue complications encountered during the management of distal radius fractures, including tendon injury, nerve dysfunction, vascular compromise, skin problems, compartment syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, and ligament dysfunction. There are many vital soft tissue structures in close proximity to the osseous anatomy around the wrist, and the complications associated with the soft tissues may be more problematic than the bone injury itself.
