The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the functional outcomes of patients with a distal radius fracture with and without a concomitant fracture of the ulnar styloid process. A systematic literature search was performed to identify all studies comparing patients with a distal radius fracture with and without an ulnar styloid process fracture. The initial search revealed 511 articles, of which 12 articles with a total of 2243 patients were included; 1196 patients with and 1047 patients without an ulnar styloid process fracture...

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...

BACKGROUND: Distal radius fractures (DRFs) are the second most common fractures, after hip fractures, seen in clinical practice. The high incidence of low-energy trauma DRFs in elderly patients raises questions about the best treatment method in terms of function, pain, and quality of life. Although the majority of these fractures are treated non-operatively with cast immobilization, valid scientific evidence of the optimal cast immobilization is lacking. In addition, several publications, including Cochrane review have outlined the need for more evidence to determine the most appropriate method of cast immobilization...

Hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) represents a heterogeneous group of diseases often associated with progressive skeletal deformities. Most frequently, mutations in EXT1 and EXT2 genes with autosomal dominant inheritance are responsible for HME. In our group of 9 families with HME we evaluated the clinical course of the disease and analysed molecular background using Sanger sequencing and MLPA in EXT1 and EXT2 genes. The mean age in our group of patients, when the first exostosis was recognised was 4.5 years (range 2-10 years) and the number of exostoses per one patient documented on X-ray ranged from 2 to 54...

Precision errors need to be known when monitoring bone micro-architecture in children with HR-pQCT. Precision errors for trabecular bone micro-architecture ranged from 1 to 8% when using the standard evaluation at the radius and tibia. Precision errors for cortical bone micro-architecture ranged from 1 to 11% when using the advanced cortical evaluation. INTRODUCTION: Our objective was to define HR-pQCT precision errors (CV%RMS) and least significant changes (LSCs) at the distal radius and tibia in children using the standard evaluation and the advanced cortical evaluation...

PURPOSE: Loss of full wrist range of motion is common after treatment of distal radius fractures. Loss of wrist extension limiting functional activities, although uncommon, can occur after volar plating of distal radius fractures. Unlike other joints in which capsular release is a common form of treatment for stiffness, this has been approached with caution in the wrist owing to concerns for carpal instability. We tested the null hypothesis that hardware removal and open volar capsular release would not lead to improved upper extremity-specific patient-reported outcome (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand [DASH] questionnaire)...

We present a case of a parosteal osteosarcoma mimicking an osteochondroma with atypical clinical features, radiographic findings, and histological examination. This report serves to exemplify the importance of recognizing the similarities between these 2 entities and other peculiar features that will help to differentiate between sessile osteochondromas and parosteal osteosarcomas, to prevent misdiagnosis.

The epidemiology and pathogenesis of fractures in postmenopausal women has previously been investigated in the Global Longitudinal study of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW). To date, however, relationships between bone imaging outcomes and fracture have not been studied in this cohort. We examined relationships between high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT) parameters and fracture in the UK arm of GLOW, performing a cluster analysis to assess if our findings were similar to observations reported from older participants of the Hertfordshire Cohort Study (HCS), and extended the analysis to include tibial measurements...

Giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone is a locally aggressive benign neoplasm that is associated with a large biological spectrum ranging from latent benign to highly recurrent and occasionally metastatic malignant bone tumor. It accounts for 4-10% of all bone tumors and typically affects the meta-epiphyseal region of long bones of young adults. The most common site involved is the distal femur, followed by the distal radius, sacrum, and proximal humerus. Clinical symptoms are nonspecific and may include local pain, swelling, and limited range of motion of the adjacent joint...

PURPOSE: Volar plating of distal radius fractures is an increasingly common procedure. Presterilized, single-use volar plate fixation sets have been purported to increase operating room efficiency and decrease cost. The purpose of this study was to compare the actual cost of using a conventional set compared with the projected cost of using its single-use counterpart. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 30 consecutive cases of volar plate fixation in which conventional instrument sets were used...

PURPOSE: An ulnar styloid fracture often occur in association with a distal radial fracture. Whether an ulnar styloid fracture interfere with the results of a distal radial fracture still remains controversial. The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of an accompanying ulnar styloid fracture on clinical outcomes in patients with distal radial fractures. METHODS: A meta-analysis of published studies comparing outcomes of distal radial fractures with an ulnar styloid fracture versus isolated distal radial fractures was performed...

We describe the case of a patient with distal radius fracture who became unable to flex the distal interphalangeal joint of the index finger after internal fixation using a volar locking plate. There was palpable crepitus with active thumb motion, and wrist radiographs showed prominence of the volar plate at the watershed line. Therefore, our initial diagnosis was plate-induced closed rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon of the index finger. However, upon surgical removal of the plate, no tendon rupture was found...

BACKGROUND: Distal ulna fractures at the ulnar neck can be seen in association with distal radius fractures, and multiple techniques have been described to address the ulnar neck component of these injuries. We have found that treatment of ulnar neck fractures can be challenging in terms of anatomy and fracture fixation. We present a new percutaneous fixation technique for ulnar neck fractures commonly seen with distal radius fractures. TECHNIQUE: Fixation of the ulnar neck fracture is performed after fixation of the distal radius fracture...
