Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, Dumfries, Scotland, UK.

The structures on the radial side of the wrist and thumb base can be approached by a longitudinal incision on the radial side of the wrist. However, longer longitudinal scars can be cosmetically unacceptable and can result in a scar contracture. It is preferable to curve longer incisions along the Langer's skin lines to achieve better scar characteristics. Read More

Yoga-Induced Myositis Ossificans Traumatica of the Scapholunate Ligament.

J Wrist Surg 2019 Feb 26;8(1):80-83. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California.

 Myositis ossificans traumatica (MOT) involves the heterotopic development of lamellar bone after a traumatic injury. Despite being termed "myositis," MOT is not limited to muscle but rather can involve tendons, fat, and fascia. "Traumatica" reflects that lesions are usually associated with a history of significant trauma, that is, fractures or surgery; however, many reports suggest they can also be linked to repetitive low-energy insults.

Distal radial torus fracture in an adult. A new type of occult wrist fracture?

An Sist Sanit Navar 2019 Feb 1;0(0):67689. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Servicio de Traumatología. Hospital Virgen del Camino..

Torus or buckle fractures typically affect children who have suffered indirect minor wrist injuries. They are axial compression-type metaphyseal fractures of cortical and cancellous bone, which are stable and their treatment therefore consists in immobilisation of the joint for three to four weeks. We present an atypical case of distal radius torus fracture in a 19-year-old adult male, which has not been previously reported in adults and can be considered a new type of occult fracture.

Outcomes Following Temporary Kapandji Pinning Technique and Distal Radial LCP Fixation for Intra-Articular Fractures of the Displaced Distal Radius.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Orthopaedics Phramongkutklao Hospital and College of Medicine, Bangkok.

In partially or completely displaced intra-articular fracture of the distal radius , achieving satisfactory reduction and maintenance of good reduction before applying the plate may be difficult. Especially to accomplish the anatomic volar tilt remains a problem. Typically, the Kapandji technique has been described to reduce and stabilize a large displaced and extra-articular fracture of the distal radius. Read More

Defining displacement thresholds for surgical intervention for distal radius fractures - A Delphi study.

PLoS One 2019 8;14(1):e0210462. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Academic Team of Musculoskeletal Surgery, University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester, United Kingdom.

Distal radius fractures are very common yet controversy exists regarding which require treatment and is reflected by significant variation in surgical intervention rate. Evidence regarding which fractures would benefit from intervention is varied and largely poor quality. This study had three aims; identify which radiographic parameters are clinically important; quantify the threshold of displacement at which intervention should occur and investigate which patient factors influence the decision to intervene.

Unfall‑, Hand- und Wiederherstellungschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf, Martinistr. 52, 20246, Hamburg, Deutschland.

Nonunion of the scaphoid is a severe complication of often insufficiently treated scaphoid fractures or those which have been diagnosed too late. The treatment of scaphoid nonunion is challenging und should be performed by experienced hand surgeons. The anatomical shape, the retrograde blood supply and the biomechanics of the scaphoid complicate the healing process. Read More

[Anatomy and pathobiomechanics of the scaphoid].

Unfallchirurg 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Klinik für Unfall‑, Hand- und Wiederherstellungschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Münster, Waldeyerstr. 1, 48149, Münster, Deutschland.

Among the carpal bones the scaphoid (Os scaphoideum) is the most important. The most frequent fracture of the carpus is a fracture of the scaphoid bone. The frequently occurring absence of healing of these fractures as well as unhealed ruptures of the ligament complex between the scaphoid and lunate, lead to the most severe biomechanical and thus the most severe clinical changes of the wrist.

Age-Related Variations in Volar Cortical Angle of the Distal Radius.

Hand (N Y) 2018 Dec 31:1558944718820962. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

1 University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA.

Background: The ideal volar locking plate for the treatment of distal radius fracture should anatomically fit the volar surface of the distal radius. The purpose of this study was to measure the volar cortical angle (VCA) of uninjured adult distal radii to determine how well the VCA matches that of modern volar locking plates and whether variations in the VCA are related to demographic factors.

Methods: A retrospective radiographic analysis of 273 uninjured adult distal radii was performed. Read More

Prevention and management of early treatment failures in elbow injuries.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 Feb 24;105(1S):S75-S87. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Chirurgie orthopédique et traumatologique, CHU Charles-Nicolle, 1, rue de Germont, 76031 Rouen, France.

The appropriate management of early treatment failures in patients with elbow injuries requires the identification of the cause of failure. In this work, six types of elbow injury are considered: (i) identification of early failed reduction of a dislocation or fracture-dislocation of the elbow should lead to a repeat reduction procedure, testing for elbow instability, and ligament repair, followed by the use of a hinged external fixator to allow early mobilisation. Differentiating an isolated dislocation from a dislocation combined with a fracture of the coracoid process is crucial. Read More

New therapeutic targets for osteoporosis.

Maturitas 2019 Feb 16;120:1-6. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Unit of Reproductive Endocrinology, First Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece; Centre of Orthopaedic and Regenerative Medicine Research (CORE), Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Innovation (CIRI), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece.

New anti-osteoporotic agents have been developed, potentially enriching the therapeutic armamentarium. Currently available osteoanabolic therapies are the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and PTH-related peptide (PTHrP) synthetic analogues, teriparatide and abaloparatide. Daily administration at doses of 20 and 80 μg, respectively, in contrast to continuous PTH secretion, leads to increased bone formation and reduces vertebral and non-vertebral fracture risk.

Interventions for treating wrist fractures in children.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 12 19;12:CD012470. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Health and Social Care Institute, Teesside University, Middlesbrough, Tees Valley, UK, TS1 3BA.

Background: Wrist fractures, involving the distal radius, are the most common fractures in children. Most are buckle fractures, which are stable fractures, unlike greenstick and other usually displaced fractures. There is considerable variation in practice, such as the extent of immobilisation for buckle fractures and use of surgery for seriously displaced fractures. Read More

Comparison of Wide-Awake Local Anesthesia No Tourniquet With General Anesthesia With Tourniquet for Volar Plating of Distal Radius Fracture.

Orthopedics 2019 Jan 13;42(1):e93-e98. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Wide-awake local anesthesia no tourniquet (WALANT) is used for various hand surgeries, but there are no reports of its use for distal radius fractures. The authors compared perioperative variables and clinical outcomes for volar plating for distal radius fractures with WALANT vs general anesthesia with tourniquet. This retrospective study included 47 patients who presented with distal radius fractures between January 2015 and February 2017. Read More
