The effect of using a tourniquet on the intensity of postoperative pain in forearm fractures. A randomized study in 32 surgically treated patients. (1/394)

We have analysed the relationship between the intensity of postoperative pain and the use of a pneumatic tourniquet in procedures for operative fixation of fractures of the forearm. Thirty-two patients were divided randomly into two groups as a control (NT) and tourniquet (T). The pain scores in the NT group were significantly lower. Patients over the age of 30 had notably more pain than those younger after the use of a tourniquet. Avoidance of the tourniquet gave better postoperative analgesia in male patients and in those with comminuted fractures. When a tourniquet was used the best results were obtained if it was kept inflated for less than one hour.  (+info)

Systemic hormonal, electrolyte, and substrate changes after non-thermal limb injury in children. (2/394)

Relatively little is known regarding the hormonal changes after injury in children. Adult protocols are often applied to children, although the latter often have different physiological responses to trauma. Twenty children with an angulated displaced fracture of the radius and/or ulna (injury severity score 9) were studied prospectively for changes in adrenaline, noradrenaline, cortisol, angiotensin II, arginine vasopressin, urea, electrolytes, and glucose. Two blood samples were taken: one an arrival at the accident and emergency department and one preoperatively several hours later. There were marked increases in adrenaline, noradrenaline, cortisol, and arginine vasopressin above the normal range. Five (25%) cases demonstrated greater early increases in adrenaline than those reported for adult injuries of similar severity. Early hypokalaemia in four cases had corrected towards normal within a few hours, without potassium supplementation.  (+info)

Salvage of the head of the radius after fracture-dislocation of the elbow. A case report. (3/394)

We describe a patient with a Mason type-III fracture of the head of the radius associated with traumatic dislocation of the elbow. The radial head was intact throughout its circumference despite being completely detached from the shaft and devoid of any soft-tissue attachments. Severe comminution of the radial neck prevented reconstruction by internal fixation and precluded prosthetic replacement of the head. The head was fixed to the shaft with a tricortical iliac-crest bone graft which replaced the neck. Two years later, the patient had a stable elbow with flexion from 10 degrees to 130 degrees. Radiologically, the head of the radius appeared to be viable and the bone graft had incorporated.  (+info)

Simultaneous bilateral elbow dislocation in an international gymnast. (4/394)

Elbow dislocation is a rare injury in elite athletes. We report an unusual case of simultaneous bilateral elbow dislocations with a unilateral radial head fracture in an international female athlete competing on the asymmetrical bars.

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (5/394)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

Velvet antler polypeptides promoted proliferation of chondrocytes and osteoblast precursors and fracture healing. (6/394)

AIM: To study the effects of velvet antler (VA) total polypeptides (VATP) and VA polypeptides, VAP-A, VAP-B, and VAP-C on proliferation of chondrocytes and osteoblast precusors. METHODS: Chondrocytes (rabbit and human fetus) and osteoblast precusors (chick embryo) were incubated in the culture medium containing VATP or VAP-A, VAP-B, and VAP-C. [3H]TdR incorporation into DNA was measured. Fracture healing-promoting action of VATP was determined in rats. RESULTS: VATP 50-200 mg.L-1 and VAP-B 12.5, 25, and 50 mg.L-1 showed most marked proliferation-promoting activity for rabbit costed chondrocytes and increased incorporation of [3H]TdR from (73 +/- 9) Bq (control group) to (272 +/- 55), (327 +/- 38), and (415 +/- 32) Bq, respectively (P < 0.01). The activity of VAP-A was weaker than that of VAP-B, and VAP-C had no activity. VATP 10 and 20 mg.kg-1 by local injection into the cross-section fracture area accelerated healing of radial fracture. The healing rate of VATP-treated group was higher (75%) than that of control group (25%) (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: VATP accelerated fracture healing by stimulating proliferation of chondrocytes and osteoblast precursors.  (+info)

Safety of the limited open technique of bone-transfixing threaded-pin placement for external fixation of distal radial fractures: a cadaver study. (7/394)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the safety of threaded-pin placement for fixation of distal radial fractures using a limited open approach. DESIGN: A cadaver study. METHODS: Four-millimetre Schanz threaded pins were inserted into the radius and 3-mm screw pins into the second metacarpal of 20 cadaver arms. Each threaded pin was inserted in the dorsoradial oblique plane through a limited open, 5- to 10-mm longitudinal incision. Open exploration of the threaded-pin sites was then carried out. OUTCOME MEASURES: Injury to nerves, muscles and tendons and the proximity of these structures to the threaded pins. RESULTS: There were no injuries to the extensor tendons, superficial radial or lateral antebrachial nerves of the forearm, or to the soft tissues overlying the metacarpal. The lateral antebrachial nerve was the closest nerve to the radial pins and a branch of the superficial radial nerve was closest to the metacarpal pins. The superficial radial nerve was not close to the radial pins. CONCLUSION: Limited open threaded-pin fixation of distal radial fractures in the dorsolateral plane appears to be safe.  (+info)

Transcranial doppler detection of fat emboli. (8/394)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The fat embolism syndrome (FES) is characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of pulmonary and neurological symptoms as well as skin and mucosal petechiae in the setting of long-bone fractures or their surgical repair. Its pathophysiology is poorly understood, and effective treatments are lacking. We present 5 patients with long-bone fractures in whom in vivo microembolism was detected by transcranial Doppler. METHODS: Five patients with long-bone fractures were monitored with transcranial Doppler for microembolic signals (MESs) after trauma. Two patients also had intraoperative monitoring. A TC-2020 instrument equipped with MES detection software was used. Detected signals were saved for subsequent review. Selected signals satisfied criteria defined previously and were categorized as large or small. RESULTS: Cerebral microembolism was detected in all 5 patients and was transient, resolving within 4 days of injury. Intraoperative monitoring revealed an increase in MESs during intramedullary nail insertion. The characteristics of MESs after injury varied among patients, with large signals being more frequent in the only patient with a patent foramen ovale. CONCLUSIONS: Cerebral microembolism after long-bone fractures can be detected in vivo and monitored over time. These findings may have potential diagnostic and therapeutic implications.  (+info)

Distal radius fractures (DRF) are the most common type of fracture in the human body, and a large proportion of DRFs result in complications. Previously proposed preventive strategies have questionable efficacy and may impose additional risks on the patient. Because many complications secondary to distal radius fractures are associated with excessive swelling, a prophylactic means for edema reduction could dramatically reduce morbidity among this population. A compression glove is a non-invasive, non-pharmacological way to reduce edema. Previous studies have confirmed its utility in edema reduction after hand trauma and among patients with chronic inflammatory conditions, but none have sufficiently investigated the application to patients with distal radius fractures, a population in which this intervention could have a large impact. The investigators propose a randomized controlled trial to evaluate use of a compression glove during recovery among patients who have sustained an unstable distal ...
BACKGROUND: Radial head fractures can occur in isolation or in association with elbow and forearm injuries. Treatment options include nonoperative management, fragment or whole-head excision, open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), and radial head arthroplasty. However, the evidence supporting ORIF for repairable radial head fractures is inconclusive.. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We compared patients undergoing ORIF for isolated radial head fractures or for radial head fractures associated with other fractures or elbow dislocations in terms of patient-related disability, presence of posttraumatic arthritis, complications, and rate of reoperation for capsular release.. METHODS: Between 1997 and 2008, 52 patients underwent ORIF of the radial head for isolated radial head fractures (simple group) and 29 underwent ORIF for radial head fracture with an associated fracture or dislocation (complex group). General indications for ORIF included displaced radial fractures, large articular surface fragments, ...
Residual dysfunction after a fracture of the distal radius is most often mild but may give rise to significant impairment especially in the younger active population. The symptoms often manifest around the distal ulna when loading the hand or rotating the forearm. In this region are found articular and soft tissue connections running from the distal ulna to the distal radius as well as to the ulnar side of the carpus. The aims of this thesis were to investigate the effects of distal radius fractures on the structures about the distal ulna and to what extent malunion and ulnar soft tissue lesions affect function. Both patients and cadaver specimens were used in the five different studies.. In a retrospective study of 17 malunited distal radius fractures supination impairment improved significantly by correction of the skeletal malunion. This highlights the importance of distal radioulnar joint congruity for forearm rotation in a subset of cases.. The pathomechanisms of injury to the triangular ...
Before the 18th century, distal radius fracture was believed to be due to dislocation of the carpal bones or the displacement of the distal radioulnar articulation. In the 18th century, Petit first suggested that these types of injuries might be due to fractures rather than dislocations. Another author, Pouteau, suggested the common mechanism of injury which leads to this type of fractures - injury to the wrist when a person falls on an outstretched hand with dorsal displacement of the wrist. However, he also suggested that volar displacement of the wrist was due to the ulnar fracture. His work was met with skepticism from colleagues and little recognition, since the article was published after he died. In 1814, Abraham Colles described the characteristics of distal end radius fracture. In 1841, Guilaume Dupuytren acknowledged the contributions by Petit and Pouteau, agreeing that the distal end radius fracture is indeed a fracture, not a dislocation. In 1847, Malgaigne described the mechanism of ...
Causes. A distal radius fracture is typically caused by direct trauma to the wrist. Common types of trauma include a fall on an outstretched hand, an automobile or bike accident, or a forceful blow to the wrist during a contact sport such as football.. Symptoms. Symptoms typically include pain, swelling, and tenderness at the wrist. The hand and wrist may be bruised and appear deformed. Moving the wrist may be difficult and painful. Mild numbness or tingling in the fingers may be present.. Treatment. Distal radius fractures can range from simple, clean breaks to severe fractures with multiple bone fragments. Treatment options, which vary depending on the type of injury, are designed to hold the broken radius in its correct position while it heals. If the fracture ends are out of alignment, the physician may need to perform a procedure called a closed reduction to realign them. The bones can then be stabilized with a cast, splint, or brace that may cover only the wrist and forearm or may extend ...
Introduction. Distal radius fractures are common fractures of the upper extremity, estimated to account for one-sixth of all fractures seen and treated in emergency rooms.1-3 These fractures are seen in a bimodal age distribution and usually result from a low-energy trauma. Displaced fractures involving the articular surface of the distal radius have the worst prognosis because of the potential for incongruity and arthrosis of the radiocarpal and distal radio-ulnar joints.4 On plain radiographs, Robert Medoff5 introduced the teardrop angle (TDA), which is a radiographic parameter that gives information on the congruity of the lunate facet. This is measured as the angle formed between the central axis of the teardrop and the radial shaft. Although many surgeons are unaware of this parameter, it is important because an abnormal TDA can herald the presence of articular incongruity of the lunate facet.. The purpose of this study was to assess the reduction of the lunate facet in intra-articular ...
Distal radius fractures are very common. In fact, the radius is the most commonly broken bone in the arm. Treatment depends on many factors, such as the nature of the fracture, your age, and your activity level.

AU - Yuge, Hidehiko. AU - Mae, Takao. AU - Iwamoto, Yukihide. PY - 2016/6/1. Y1 - 2016/6/1. N2 - METHODS: Twenty patients treated with a volar locking plate were evaluated. The active range of motion and grip strength were assessed at four weeks, six weeks, three months, six months and one year after surgery.RESULTS: The ratio of the range of motion in pronation and supination recovered significantly earlier than for any other directions within six months after surgery (p = 0.0205), however, the ratio of the range of motion among the six directions was not significantly different at one year after surgery (p = 0.0823). The recovery of the range of motion in flexion was 96.8% compared with the contralateral wrist at one year after surgery, and it was not significantly lower than that in extension, radial deviation or ...
Background: Computed tomography can be an adjunct to radiographs when evaluating intra-articular fractures of the distal part of the radius. Acute-phase multidetector computed tomography has better temporal, spatial, and contrast resolution than a conventional scanner has. The aim of this study was to determine prospectively whether the addition of a multidetector computed tomography scan (with various reconstructions) results in changes in the evaluation of intra- articular distal radial fractures and thus changes in the plans for further management. Methods: Radiographs and multidetector computed tomography scans were compared prospectively in the evaluation of 117 patients (120 wrists) with acute intra-articular distal radial fractures. The parameters that were measured included the ability to detect intra-articular step and gap displacements, central articular depression, coronal plane fracture, the number of articular fragments, comminution, and associated injuries in the wrist region ...
Over the last three decades, operative treatment of distal radius fractures has become increasingly common compared to non-operative treatment. Over the last 15 years there has been a trend towards more invasive, internal plate fixation of fractures of the distal radius. One argument in favor of internal fixation for these fractures is that, similar to other periarticular fractures, it would be beneficial to allow early movement of the wrist articulation. There is not, however, any data to support this statement. In fact, data regarding external fixation that either immobilizes the wrist or allows wrist motion suggest that early wrist mobilization is not as important as the overall alignment of the bone in terms of final wrist motion. This question is important in patient care and in decision-making regarding these fractures. Additionally, many companies use this claim as a marketing point in spite of the lack of evidence. We consider that good quality data is needed to determine the answer to ...
A distal radius fracture, or broken wrist, is a common bone fracture.. The wrist is a complex collection of bones and joints that join the hand to the forearm. The radius is the larger of the two forearm bones. The end closest to the wrist is called the distal end. A fracture of the distal radius occurs when this area of the radius breaks.. ...

(Adult radial head fractures were evaluated for associated lesions. Mean age was 45 years. Gender ratio was approximately 1:1. Men were on average 7 years younger at the time of injury and sustained more severe injuries. About 67% of patients had a type 1 radial head fracture, 14% had a type 2, and 19% had a comminuted, type 3 fracture. Eight percent of type 1, 50% of type 2, and 75% of type 3 fractures had associated injuries. Associated fractures were common, with coronoid fractures as the most common associated fracture at the elbow. Clinically significant lateral and/or medial collateral ligament ruptures were found in 11% of patients but these injuries were shown to remain subclinical in many other patients. The radial head fractured as part of an elbow dislocation in 14% of patients. Not surprisingly, ...

Most patients return to all of their activities following a distal radius fracture. Recovery time varies and depends on the severity of the injury and the method of treatment. After your cast or splint is removed, youll need physical therapy to reduce stiffness and restore movement in your wrist and hand. Rehabilitation can be a long process. It may take a few months, or longer, for severe injuries to heal completely. The same is true following surgery. In both cases, patients are usually able to resume light activities within one to two months, and more vigorous sports and activities within three to six months. ...

The radial head is located at the upper end of the radius, which is one of the two forearm bones. Radial head fractures are the most common fractures of the elbow in adults. These can severely affect the function of the elbow. Less serious fractures are generally treated without surgery and the more severe fractures with surgery. There are three main types of surgery. One is resection, where the fractured radial head is removed. Another type is open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), where the fractured bone is put back into position and fixed in place by various devices such as screws. The third type of surgery is radial head replacement or arthroplasty, where the radial head is replaced by a metal implant. There is uncertainty and controversy about when surgery is needed as well as what type of surgical intervention is best.. This review includes evidence from three randomised controlled trials with a total of 251 participants. All three trials were at some risk of bias, which means that ...

Distal radius fractures account for approximately 15% of all fractures in adults. A thorough understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of distal radius fractures is important because these injuries are not limited to just the elderly population.
In completely displaced pediatric distal radial fractures, achieving satisfactory reduction with closed manipulation and maintenance of reduction with casting is difficult. Although the Kapandji technique of K-wiring is widely practiced for distal radial fracture fixation in adults, it is rarely used in pediatric acute fractures. Forty-six completely displaced distal radial fractures in children 7 to 14 years old were treated with closed reduction and K-wire fixation. One or 2 intrafocal K-wires were used to lever out and reduce the distal fragment„s posterior and radial translation. One or 2 extrafocal K-wires were used to augment intrafocal fixation. Postoperative immobilization was enforced for 3 to 6 weeks (with a short arm plaster of Paris cast for the first half of the time and a removable wrist splint for the second half), after which time the K-wires were removed. Patients were followed for a minimum of 4 months. Mean patient age was 9.5 years. Near-anatomical reduction was achieved ...

A fixation plate includes a set of threaded peg holes adapted to individually receive fixation pegs therethrough and non-threaded alignment holes having a relatively smaller diameter than the peg holes and preferably sized to closely receive a K-wire. The alignment holes are located between the peg holes. One alignment hole is configured for aligning the plate during an osteotomy procedure, while other alignment holes are configured for use after fracture reduction and receive K-wires to temporarily stabilize the fracture and secure the plate to the bone and determine whether pegs inserted through adjacent respective peg holes will be properly located before drilling relatively larger holes for such pegs. The head of the plate has a shape and contour which provides bone support and a low profile which minimizes the potential for soft tissue irritation.
Left) An x-ray of a normal wrist. (Right) The white arrows point to a distal radius fracture.. Treatment. Treatment of broken bones follows one basic rule: the broken pieces must be put back into position and prevented from moving out of place until they are healed.. There are many treatment options for a distal radius fracture. The choice depends on many factors, such as the nature of the fracture, your age and activity level, and the surgeons personal preferences.. Nonsurgical Treatment. If the broken bone is in a good position, a plaster cast may be applied until the bone heals.. If the position (alignment) of your bone is out of place and likely to limit the future use of your arm, it may be necessary to re-align the broken bone fragments. Reduction is the technical term for this process in which the doctor moves the broken pieces into place.

Dennis J Warfield Jr, MD, Peter Murray, MD, Michael Osborne, MD, Steven Clendenen, MD; Mayo Clinic. Introduction/Background: A 39-year-old female sustained a right open distal radius fracture after a motor vehicle accident. She emergently underwent irrigation, debridement and open reduction and internal fixation of her distal radius fracture and placed in a mid-humerus cast for six weeks. With discontinuation of the cast, she was started on a progressive physical therapy regimen, but found to have limited progress due to decreased range of motion (ROM) in the right upper extremity, with the primary deficit being her right elbow. Over the course of three months the patient exhibited signs and symptoms of numbness and tingling within her right median nerve distribution along with color and temperature changes in the hand. The patient was furthermore referred to pain management for treatment of her suspected CRPS Type 2 with optimization of her overall limited ROM.. Methods: A peripheral nerve ...
In addition to the US study, the company also has initiated a three centre pilot clinical study in Canada to evaluate GEM OS1 in foot and ankle fusion procedures and a single centre clinical study in Sweden to evaluate GEM OS1 in distal radius fractures. Distal radius fractures, or fractures of the wrist, are one of the worlds most common fractures, especially in elderly individuals with osteoporosis. The company anticipates completing enrolment for both the Canadian and Swedish studies by mid 2006. ...
Although our patient experienced bilateral trauma, she did not need fixation, she was allowed to perform range of motion exercises, and she was not confined to specific body positions. This point differs from the reports of Norwood et al. and Watanabe et al. [8, 13]. Moreover, our patient had no previous thrombophilia problems.. Our patient was not motivated to leave her bed after the operation even though she could walk on the operation day. As a result, she remained in bed until the ninth post-operative day. This is the reason why the pulmonary thromboembolism occurred. We believe she had difficulty of leaving her bed because of her age, pain, and anxiety. According to Nickinson et al. researchs on the occurrence of anxiety and depression after operation, they reported that elderly patients and women tended to experience depression after operation [15]. Therefore, we should take depression into our consideration strongly after operations in elderly women. The patient mentioned in this report ...

None of this should have much impact on Bartons personal prospects for reelection, as his district tilts strongly to the GOP side. But Republicans are well advised to stay clear of Bartons comments, because the poll numbers indicate this is an issue where Democrats could find some resonance with independent voters. They see Barton negatively by a 35/14 margin, think he should lose his leadership post by a 45/29 spread, think Obama was right on this issue 59/29, and oppose an apology to BP 75/12. Given those numbers GOP leaders would probably like to see this issue disappear as soon as possible ...

Up until a few decades ago, distal radius fractures were often casually regarded as Colles fractures. The treatment was mainly manipulation and casting, since the generally accepted concept proposed by Abraham Colles in 18141, was that although these fractures would heal with deformity, the functional deficit would be acceptable. With better understanding of the various fracture types, classifications such as Frykman,2 Melone3 and AO4 were developed. There was a need for a better method of treatment after careful study of the individual fracture pattern. Moreover, the need for better outcomes in these fractures has frequently been revisited as newer methods of treatment have been developed. Fracture union is no longer the only goal, as the restoration of normal anatomy with early functional recovery, as well as resultant full and painless motion of the wrist, take over as the ultimate goals of treatment.. Factors affecting choice of management. Patient-related. • Age. • Patients aged , 65 ...
Paediatric wrist-buckle fractures are common distal radius fractures with inherent stability. Traditional management with complete plaster-cast immobilization necessitates follow-up visits, time off school/work and hospital treatment costs. Treatment with alternative splinting, negating the need for follow-up visits and saving time and money, has been proposed. However, concerns with regard to complications, primarily pain, have been raised; hence, the topic remains controversial. A systematic review was performed with eight randomized-controlled trials analysed. Alternative splinting was superior to casting in terms of function, cost and convenience, but with no significantly worse pain or fracture complication level. The evidence endorses the use alternative splinting over casting in paediatric wrist-buckle fractures.
We conducted a study to compare functional and radiographic outcomes of unstable comminuted intra-articular distal radius fractures (DRFs) treated with a nonspanning external fixation device and outcomes achieved with volar locking plates in a historical control group. 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.There was no statistically significant difference in the measured outcomes for wrist flexion and extension, radial deviation, pronation and supination, volar tilt, radial height, radial inclination, and Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) scores between the 2 groups. The external fixator group had significantly more postoperative ulnar deviation than the historical control group. Complications included pin-tract infection and fracture in 1 patient who fell 2 weeks after fixator

Background Studies have established an increased risk of radiocarpal joint posttraumatic arthritis in patients with displaced intra-articular fractures of the distal radius, although this phenomenon has yet to be evaluated in the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). Purpose We hypothesized that patients with displaced intra-articular fractures of the sigmoid notch would have a higher prevalence of DRUJ arthritis and greater upper extremity dysfunction after operative treatment of distal radius fractures compared with fractures without sigmoid notch involvement. We also hypothesized that the degree of sigmoid notch incongruity would be correlated with the grade of DRUJ arthritis and the severity of upper extremity dysfunction. Patients and Methods A retrospective review was conducted on surgically treated patients with distal radius fractures with pre- and/or postoperative computed tomography (CT) scans. Patients were divided into groups based on presence or absence of fracture extension into the ...
The treatment of unstable distal radius fractures continues to improve as better methods of skeletal fixation and soft-tissue management are developed. Apart from closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of simpler fracture patterns, the three main methods of management are external fixation, dorsal plating, and volar fixed-angle plating. Specific advantages of volar fixed-angle plating include stable fixed-angle support that permits early active wrist rehabilitation, direct fracture reduction, and fewer soft-tissue and tendon problems. Volar fixed-angle plating also avoids the complications often associated with external fixation and dorsal plating. Biomechanical data indicate that, when loaded to failure, volar fixed-angle plates have significant strength advantages over dorsal plating. Volar fixed-angle plating is advantageous in elderly osteopenic patients and for high-energy comminuted fractures and malunions requiring osteotomy ...
We included two trials that involved 126 participants but provided results for only 108 participants. Most participants were adults, typically over 30 years of age. Both trials were at high risk of selection, performance, detection and reporting bias. Reflecting this high risk of bias, we downgraded the quality of evidence two levels for study limitations and a further level for imprecision. Thus we judged the evidence for all outcomes to be very low quality, meaning that we are very uncertain about these estimates.. One trial included participants with Mason type 1, 2 or 3 radial head fractures and also a few cases of traumatic elbow hemarthrosis without fracture. The other trial included participants with Mason type 1 and 2 fractures. All participants were managed non-surgically.. Neither trial reported functional outcome based on validated patient-reported outcome measures of function or pain using validated measures such as a visual analogue scale. Very low quality evidence (108 ...

Elbow dislocation can lead to radial head fracture. This condition is treated by elbow surgeons at North Central Surgical Center Hospital in Dallas TX.
There is a significant trend towards early operative fixation of distal radial fractures. This is particularly common in unstable fractures, occurring in osteoporotic patients. In the past distal radial fractures were manipulated and placed in a plaster of Paris, and held either by just the plaster of Paris or wire fixation. However, due to the poor quality of bone, the wire was often cut out, and patients were left with a recurrent deformity and significant problems. Over the last five to ten years there has been development of special surgical plates, which allow the fracture to be fixed in an extremely stable configuration, even in the presence of thin, poor quality bone. Having performed this operative fixation, with a scar usually through the front of the wrist, but occasionally on the back, patients are mobilised within the first week of surgery.. ...
