The aim of the present study was to assess the technical feasibility of minimally invasive volar plate removal following distal radius fracture. 388 plates removed from 387 patients (357 female: mean age, 50 years) were assessed retrospectively. The incision used the primary minimally invasive approach and was closed after plate removal by intradermal continuous suture, without drainage or immobilization. Mean scar size was 22.2mm preoperatively, and the incision was 19.8mm at start and 21.4mm at end of procedure, these differences being non-significant...

About 10 years after volar locking plates were introduced to treat acute distal radius fractures, several papers have reported short-term complications. The aim of this paper was to report our complication rate over a 2-year period and to compare it to the literature. We found similar complication rates despite different classification systems. Because of the prospective nature of our study, we were able to demonstrate that extra-articular and/or intra-articular scores exceeding 8 points on a 12-points scale were statistically associated with more complications, irrespective of the patient's overall health and age...

The use of external fixation or internal plating to bridge communitive fractures of the distal radius is discussed based on a review of prospective and meta-analysis studies. Distraction by an external fixator is not advised (ligamentotaxis) because of the high incidence of complex regional pain syndrome and the destabilization of bone and ligaments surrounding the intra-articular fracture site. The external fixator must be used as a neutralization device and supplemented with K-wire or volar plate fixation...

Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) has been used in recent years to treat fractures of the distal radius with volar locking plates. Its advantages are the preservation of the pronator quadratus and good esthetics. The MIPO technique was described originally with two incisions: one distal transverse or longitudinal incision and one proximal longitudinal incision. The trend is now to use a single longitudinal incision less than 20mm long. Functional and radiological outcomes are comparable to those of conventional techniques...

Extra-articular distal radius fractures in active elderly patients are common and predominantly affect females. The high number of patients lost to follow-up compromises the evaluation of outcomes. Treatment aims to control the comminution and allow fast recovery of pre-injury activity levels. Fixation with volar locking plates is the gold standard. The role of bone substitutes in this type of injury is unclear.

Volar plate fixation of unstable distal radius fractures has become the preferred technique by most surgeons for the operative treatment of displaced distal radius fractures. Flexor tendon rupture is a rare but serious complication associated with this operation that is thought to be due to irritation of the flexor tendons over the prominent distal edge of the plate. We describe a novel technique of using the brachioradialis tendon to cover the distal edge of the plate to help prevent tendon irritation and rupture...

Distal radius fractures account for nearly 1 of every 5 fractures in individuals aged 65 or older. Moreover, increased susceptibility to vertebral and hip fractures has been documented in patients a year after suffering a distal radius fracture. Although women are more susceptible to hip fractures, men experience a higher mortality rate in the 7 years following a distal radius fracture. Traditional approaches to distal radius fractures have included both surgical and nonsurgical treatments, with predominant complaints involving weakness, stiffness, and pain...

OBJECTIVE: Anatomic volar rim locking plates are designed with the aim of treating intraarticular distal radius fractures. When used to treat comminuted distal radius fractures, these plates can damage the flexor tendons. In this study, we sought to determine the radiological and functional results and rate of complications of these plates. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 36 patients (28 males, 8 females; mean age: 46.4 years) with AO/OTA Type C2-C3 distal radius fractures treated with anatomic volar rim distal radius plates between January 2011 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Distal radial physeal fractures with volar displacement are rare. Several methods of operative treatment include volar plate without inserting distal screws, percutaneous technique using two anterior skin incisions and reversed Kapandji technique with pins introduced through a posterior approach and locked at the anterior cortex of the fracture. METHODS: We report three cases along with a literature review of the surgical techniques described in the past and a novel surgical technique for this uncommon fracture termed "Volar Kapandji"...

: The purpose of this study was to measure the volar cortical angles of the commercially available volar locking plates and evaluate how well they fit the distal radius. We measured the volar cortical angles of the radial and intermediate columns of eight volar locking plates and compared them with the volar cortical angles of 90 cadaver distal radii. The mean radial and intermediate column volar cortical angles of the wider plates were significantly larger than those of narrower plates...

Locked volar plating is the most common surgical procedure to address distal radius fractures. The extended flexor carpi radialis approach continues to be an excellent method for visualizing distal radius fractures and applying a volar plate. A new understanding of the anatomy allows for better visualization and reduction of the many different distal radius fracture patterns surgeons commonly see. Within the extended flexor carpi radialis approach, we describe the radial septum in further detail including the anatomy which comprises the radial septum triangle...

Rupture of the flexor pollicis longus tendon is a major complication after volar locking plate fixation of distal radius fracture. This study used ultrasonography to assess the flexor pollicis longus tendon and intermediate tissue. The study assessed 27 patients (28 wrists) who underwent removal of the volar locking plate. Before plate removal, radiography and ultrasonography were performed to assess the relation between the flexor pollicis longus tendon and the volar locking plate. Intraoperatively, the authors evaluated the intermediate tissues between the flexor pollicis longus tendon and the distal volar margin of the plate...

Kienböck disease is a condition that typically occurs in the "at-risk" patient, in the "at-risk" aspect of the proximal condyle of the "at-risk" lunate. In the active male, repetitive loading causes the stress fracture that commences in the single layer proximal subchondral bone plate. The lunate fracture commences at the point the lunate cantilevers over the edge of the distal radius, and then takes on the shape of the radius. We postulate that the stress fracture violates the parallel veins of the venous subarticular plexus-leading to localized venous hypertension and subsequent ischemia and edema of the fatty marrow...

Background: Volar plate fixation with locked screws has become the preferred treatment of displaced distal radius fractures that cannot be managed nonoperatively. This treatment, however, is not without complication. The purpose of this study was to determine what percentage of hand surgeons, over a 12-month period, have experienced a tendon complication when using volar plates for the treatment of distal radius fractures. Methods: A total of 3022 hand surgeons were e-mailed a link to an online questionnaire regarding their observation and treatment of tendon injuries associated with volar plating of distal radius fractures...

The aim of the study was to analysis soft-tissue complications of volar plate fixation and it's prevention strategies along with exploring clinical effects of preserving pronator quadratus (PQ) muscle. From February 2011 to February 2013, sixty-five patients with distal radius fracture underwent open reduction and internal fixation with the volar locking palmar plates. The group with preserving PQ involved 30 patients and group with PQ repair involved 35 patients. Surgeons must took great care of not -letting drill pierce dorsal cortical bone rapidly and dorsal carpal tangential fluoroscopy was also taken in addition to lateral fluoroscopy to get accurate screw length...
