  • On a standard lateral view, the palmar cortex of the pisiform bone should overlie the central third of the interval between the palmar cortices of the distal scaphoid pole and the capitate head. (radiologyassistant.nl)
  • Apparent volar tilt of the surface of the distal radius, as measured on the lateral view, increases with supination and decreases with pronation of the wrist (5). (radiologyassistant.nl)
  • The purpose of this study is to provide a prospective, longitudinal evaluation of elbow motion in a large group of pediatric patients undergoing treatment for a lateral condylar fracture of the distal end of the humerus. (ebscohost.com)
  • Methods: We prospectively evaluated 141 patients with lateral humeral condylar fractures at a mean age of 5.2 years and with a mean follow-up of twenty-nine weeks. (ebscohost.com)

  • Conclusions: An initial rapid recovery in elbow motion can be expected after a lateral humeral condylar fracture in a child, with progressive improvements for up to one year afterthe injury. (ebscohost.com)

  • Fractures of the humerus shaft are usually correctly identified with radiographic images taken from the AP and lateral viewpoints. (wikipedia.org)
  • condylar fracture
  • People will also be very sensitive to touching the area of the jaw that is broken, or in the case of condylar fracture the area just in front of the tragus of the ear. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of a unilateral condylar fracture the back teeth on the side of the fracture will meet and the open bite will get progressively greater towards the other side of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unilateral condylar fracture may cause restricted and painful jaw movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • The neurovascular bundle of the arm may be affected in severe cases, which will cause loss of nerve function and diminished blood supply beneath the fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • If a severe distal fracture is supected, then a computed tomography (CT) scan can provide greater detail of the fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • external fixator
  • We have designed a dynamic external fixator to treat these fractures. (ebscohost.com)
  • External fixator pins or wires (as above) are placed each side of the 'man made fracture' and the external metal apparatus is used to very gradually push the two sides of the bone apart millimetre by millimetre day by day and week by week. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is known that bearing weight through fracture by walking on it, for example, with the added support of the external fixator frame actually helps fractures to heal. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • This article discusses some of the important orthopedic history relative to the physes, the relevant anatomy, the most commonly used classification system, and some details of physeal fractures in specific areas of the body. (medscape.com)
  • The fracture is most commonly caused by people falling onto a hard surface and breaking their fall with outstretched hand (FOOSH)-falling with wrists flexed would lead to a Smith's fracture. (wikipedia.org)

  • Injury
  • The injury can be difficult to diagnose initially as the attention is focused on the injury to the radial head, leading to the distal radio-ulnar injury being overlooked. (wikipedia.org)
  • The hematoma may spread downwards and backwards behind the ear, which may be confused with Battle's sign (a sign of a base of skull fracture), although this is an uncommon finding so if present, intra-cranial injury must be ruled out. (wikipedia.org)
  • trauma
  • Middle fractures are usually caused by either physical trauma or falls. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the elbow is bent during the trauma, then the olecranon is driven upward, producing a T- or Y-shaped fracture or displacing one of the condyles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mandibular fractures are typically the result of trauma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Condylar fractures are deep, so it is rare to see significant swelling although, the trauma can cause fracture of the bone on the anterior aspect of the external auditory meatus so bruising or bleeding can sometimes be seen in the ear canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • flexion
  • Conversely, malunion of distal humerus or olecranon fractures which extend intra-articularly into the ulnohumeral joint typically result in arthritis which is symptomatic during flexion and extension. (hindawi.com)
