• dorsal
  • This fracture type has a variety of treatment alternatives, including nonoperative closed reduction and casting of stable fractures, open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with dorsal or volar locking plates, and external fixation. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • fixation
  • Clinical and radiographic data from 25 patients with these fractures, treated with the external fixation device, were compared with outcomes data from historical control matched patients with fracture patterns treated with volar locking plates. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • 1 With a DRF, the primary treatment goal is anatomical reduction with restoration of radiographic parameters and stable fixation of the fracture to restore wrist function. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • Spanning fixation is particularly useful in open or highly comminuted fractures with an unstable soft-tissue envelope. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • The NBX, also suitable in open fractures with a stable soft-tissue envelope, can restore and maintain articular alignment by providing subchondral support and stability with fragment-specific fixation. (amjorthopedics.com)
