Three-Dimensional Planning and Patient-Specific Instrumentation for the Fixation of Distal Radius Fractures.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 May 30;58(6). Epub 2022 May 30.

Department of Hand Surgery, Balgrist University Hospital, University of Zurich, 8008 Zurich, Switzerland.

: Three-dimensional planning and guided osteotomy utilizing patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) with the contralateral side used as a reference have been proven as effective in the treatment of malunions following complex fractures of the distal radius. However, this approach has not yet been described in relation to fracture reduction of the distal radius. The aim of this study was to assess the technical and logistical feasibility of computer-assisted surgery in a clinical setting using PSI for fracture reduction and fixation. Read More

Quantitative Assessment of the Restoration of Original Anatomy after 3D Virtual Reduction of Long Bone Fractures.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jun 2;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Biomedical Engineering and Research Institute of Biomedical Engineering, College of Medicine, Catholic University of Korea, Seoul 06591, Korea.

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the usefulness of 3D image-based virtual reduction by validating the evaluation criteria according to guidelines suggested by the AO Surgery Reference. For this experiment, 19 intact radial ORTHObones (ORTHObones radius, 3B Scientific, Germany, Hamburg) without any fractures were prepared. All ORTHObones with six cortical marking holes (three points on the distal part and three points on the proximal part) were scanned using a CT scanner twice (before/after intentional fracture of the ORTHObone).

Spontaneous Rupture of the Extensor Pollicis Longus Tendon in a Lacrosse Player.

Phys Sportsmed 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Louisiana State University Health Shreveport, Shreveport, LA.

Spontaneous rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon at the wrist has been reported with predisposing factors to include distal radius fractures, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic or local steroids and repetitive abnormal motion of the wrist joint. We present a case of an 18-year-old college lacrosse player without history of known predisposing factors who presented with an acute inability to extend the interphalangeal (IP) joint of his right thumb. Preoperative musculoskeletal ultrasound demonstrated rupture of the EPL tendon proximal to the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint of the thumb. Read More

A Review of Pediatric Distal Radius Buckle Fractures and the Current Understanding of Angled Buckle Fractures.

Cureus 2022 May 12;14(5):e24943. Epub 2022 May 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bradenton, USA.

Distal radius buckle fractures (DRBFs) are the most common pediatric fractures and resemble the rounded portion of a Greek pillar or torus. They result from compressive forces applied to a child's highly plastic radius. DRBFs lack cortical and physeal disruption, which makes them relatively stable. Read More

Radial distraction may reduce the incidence of ulnar-sided wrist pain in ulna-plus morphology intraoperatively following distal radius fractures fixation.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Jun 15;23(1):580. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, No. 201, Sec 2, Shi-Pai Road, Taipei, 112, Taiwan, ROC.

Introduction: Fixed-angle plate fixation can be an effective treatment for distal radius fractures (DRFs). However, patients with existing ulnar positive variance might be at risk of developing symptoms of ulnar-sided wrist pain (USWP). Ulnar shortening osteotomy (USO) is one of the main treatment options for USWP. Read More

Surgical Management of Acute on Chronic Distal Radius Fractures: Correcting Malunion Deformities Through the Secondary Fracture Plane.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2022 May 2. Epub 2022 May 2.

Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM.

It is challenging to restore the clinically acceptable alignment of the distal radius after an acute on chronic fracture or after a secondary fracture occurring after malunion of a primary distal radius fracture. In cases of insignificant primary deformity, restoration to the primary deformity may suffice to obtain a successful clinical result. A borderline acceptable primary radial deformity can be unacceptable after the second injury, resulting in functional disability. Read More

Quantitative Analysis of the Volar Ulnar Corner of the Distal Radius: A Reference For Intraoperative Distal Radius Fracture Reduction.

J Hand Surg Am 2022 May 28. Epub 2022 May 28.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hand and Upper Extremity Service, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

Purpose: The reduction of distal radius fractures using volar locking plate fixation can be performed by securing the plate to the distal fragments and then levering the plate to the radial shaft. Oblique placement of the plate on the radial shaft may lead to malreduction. The aim of this study was to evaluate parameters that can be used for the assessment of intraoperative distal radius fracture reduction using "distal-first" volar plate fixation, especially the geometry of the ulnar corner.

Variations in Strain Distribution at Distal Radius under Different Loading Conditions.

Life (Basel) 2022 May 16;12(5). Epub 2022 May 16.

Management Strategy Section, President Office, Niigata University, Niigata 950-2181, Japan.

Distal radial fractures exhibit various fracture patterns. By assuming that the strain distribution at the distal radius affects the diversification of the fracture pattern, a parameter study using the finite element model of a wrist developed from computed tomography (CT) images was performed under different loading conditions. The finite element model of the wrist consisted of the radius, ulna, scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, and major carpal ligaments. Read More
