• distal radius fractures
  • Distal radius fractures (DRF) are the most common type of fracture in the human body, and a large proportion of DRFs result in complications. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • 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. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • 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. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Randomized Contr
  • The investigators propose a randomized controlled trial to evaluate use of a compression glove during recovery among patients who have sustained an unstable distal radius fracture. (clinicaltrials.gov)
