Background: Reverse oblique distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) configuration is assumed to show inferior postoperative results in ulnar-shortening osteotomy due to osteoarthritis, as the joint force pressure in the DRUJ may be increased. An evaluation and comparison of the postoperative functional results with regard to clinical and radiographic signs of arthritis among different DRUJ configurations was carried out retrospectively. Methods: Sixty-two patients after ulnar shortening osteotomy were included...

There is not enough evidence in the literature to support the use of any classification system for distal radius fractures (DRF) in adults. However, there is a need for identification of more homogeneous groups of patients with DRF so that the extent of preoperative workup and sophistication of treatment would best match the needs of the patient. The authors propose an innovative method to analyse and stratify acute DRF in adults. A one-page chart includes criteria related to the patient (P), the energy of the accident (A) and the pathology of the fracture (F)...

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...

BACKGROUND: Ulnar shortening osteotomy is a well-established treatment for ulnar impaction syndrome. Controversy remains regarding the most effective system to achieve efficient bony union, whilst minimising incidence of complications, particularly hardware irritation. We present outcomes at 2 years using the recently released low profile AO osteotomy system. METHODS: 32 consecutive patients with significant pain from ulnar impaction syndrome (idiopathic or post-traumatic), without degenerative changes of the distal radio-ulnar joint, were included...

BACKGROUND: Radius osteotomy is one of the standard surgical procedures for the treatment of Kienböck's disease. Unfortunately, radius osteotomy can result in an incongruous distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUj) postoperatively, because the procedure is performed proximal to the DRUj. METHODS: A very distal radius wedge osteotomy was performed as a 15-degree lateral closing wedge osteotomy with the apex of the wedge distal to that of conventional lateral closing wedge osteotomy; this procedure was developed to avoid postoperative incongruous DRUj...

Identifying the spatial location of touch on the skin surface is a fundamental function of our somatosensory system. Despite the fact that stimulation of even single mechanoreceptive afferent fibres is sufficient to produce clearly localised percepts, tactile localisation can be modulated also by higher level processes such as body posture. This suggests that tactile events are coded using multiple representations using different coordinate systems. Recent reports provide evidence for systematic biases on tactile localisation task, which are thought to result from a supramodal representation of the skin surface...

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...

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...

A study was undertaken to examine the presence of the distal oblique bundle of the forearm in a large sample in order to describe its true prevalence. The study sample consisted of 200 cadaveric forearms. Fifteen were excluded due to defects in the distal interosseous membrane. In the remaining 185 specimens, the distal interosseous membrane was examined following removal of soft tissue, to determine whether a distal oblique bundle was present and whether there were connecting fibres to the distal radio-ulnar joint...

Distal ulna fractures often occur with distal radius fractures, and their treatment method is still controversial. We considered reduction of the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) surface the most important factor when treating distal ulna fractures accompanied by residual dislocation. We herein presented a patient with a distal ulna fracture accompanied by dislocation of the DRUJ surface in whom an autogenous bone fragment collected from the radius was grafted onto the ulnar bone defect after open reduction and Herbert screw fixation...

INTRODUCTION: Fracture of the distal end of radius represents the most common fracture of the upper extremity accounting for 16-20% of all fractures. Plating is now emerging as the gold standard for management of distal radius fractures due to increased rate of complications such as malunion, subluxation/dislocation of distal radio-ulnar joint or late collapse of fracture. Procedures such as closed reduction and cast immobilization, ligamentotaxis with external fixator and percutaneous pin fixation are no longer acceptable...

The use of implant arthroplasty in the hand and wrist is increasing, often with little evidence of outcomes in the literature. We therefore undertook a systematic review of the outcomes of distal radio-ulnar joint arthroplasties following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines. Papers were assessed for outcomes, implant survival and methodological quality. Fourteen papers assessed ulna head replacements. The implant survival rate was 93% at a mean follow-up of 45 months...
