Treatment Options for Bifid Ulna Deformity Following Galeazzi-equivalent Injury in Adolescents.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2022 Apr 19;27(2):370-375. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Department of Hand and Upper Limb Surgery, Department of Diseases of the Musculoskeletal System, University of Turku, Turku University Hospital and CoE TYKS ORTO, Turku, Finland.

A Galeazzi-equivalent lesion occurs in children and adolescents following a traumatic distal radius fracture when the strong radioulnar ligaments and relative weakness of the ulnar physis result in an avulsion-type Salter-Harris III fracture of the distal ulna. In unreduced fractures, the osteogenic nature of the torn periosteal sleeve may result in the formation of a bifid distal ulna. We describe two cases of bifid distal ulna that developed after missed Galeazzi-equivalent lesions. Read More

Pinckney fracture: do not underestimate trauma of the distal phalanx of the hallux.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Sep 13;14(9). Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Serviço de Ortopedia Pediátrica, Hospital Dona Estefânia - Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central, Lisboa, Portugal.

Toe injuries are common in the emergency department and most of them are treated conservatively. In some circumstances, these injuries can present as a physeal fracture with concomitant soft-tissue injury affecting the nail bed and resulting in a hidden open fracture. To adequately treat these patients, a high index of suspicion is needed to diagnose and treat the open fractures and to prevent complications such as infection, osteomyelitis, malunion and premature physeal arrest.
