Posttreatment Imaging of the Wrist and Hand: Update 2022.

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2022 Jun 2;26(3):295-313. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

Common indications for surgical procedures of the wrist and hand include acute fractures or fracture-dislocations; nonunited fractures; posttraumatic, degenerative, and inflammatory arthritides and tendinopathies; injuries to tendons, ligaments, and the triangular fibrocartilage complex; and entrapment neuropathies. Soft tissue or osseous infections or masses may also need surgical treatment. Several of these procedures require surgical hardware placement, and most entail clinical follow-up with periodic imaging. Read More

Use of Plain Radiography of Uninjured Wrists as Patient-Specific Markers of Successful Reduction of Unilateral Distal Radius Fractures.

Hand (N Y) 2022 May 3:15589447221092057. Epub 2022 May 3.

Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY, USA.

Background: The standard of care of distal radius fractures requiring operative intervention involves restoration of anatomical alignment radiologically by comparing preoperative films and intraoperative fluoroscopy with established values based on population norms. The objective of this study is to evaluate the use of plain radiographs obtained from the uninjured wrist of patients who present with unilateral displaced distal radius fractures as a measure of successful achievement of anatomical realignment.

Methods: A retrospective review was performed on 133 consecutive patients who presented from August 2020 to August 2021 with a diagnosis of unilateral distal radius fracture as confirmed on 3-view plain radiography. Read More

Reverse Perilunate Injuries-The "Extended Scaphoid" Sign.

J Wrist Surg 2022 Apr 15;11(2):161-163. Epub 2021 Nov 15.

Department of Orthopedics, TRues Wrist Surgery Unit, Clinique Parc Lyon, Lyon, France.

 Reverse perilunate injuries (REPLI) are rare variants of the classic radial-sided perilunate injuries (PLI) whose mechanism was described by Mayfield in 1980. Classic radial-sided nontranscaphoid dorsal PLI invariably display a flexed, foreshortened position of the scaphoid on their initial posteroanterior (PA) and lateral radiographs. We observed that some dorsal perilunate dislocations displayed an position of the scaphoid on their initial radiographs. Read More

Adv Emerg Nurs J 2022 Apr-Jun 01;44(2):116-120

School of Nursing, Education, and Human Studies, Robert Morris University, Moon Township, Pennsylvania.

A Galeazzi fracture-dislocation is defined as a distal radius fracture with disruption of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). The typical mechanism of injury is a forceful axial load with forearm torsion, which is often seen in a fall on the out stretched hand (FOOSH). The diagnosis is made with radiographs of the distal forearm and the wrist. Read More

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

Case Study: Trans-styloid, Trans-scaphoid, Trans-triquetral, and Perilunate Dislocation.

J Orthop Case Rep 2021 Jun;11(6):63-67

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Plainview, New York, United States.

Introduction: Perilunate dislocations are rare high-energy injuries, and the diagnosis is not infrequently missed at initial presentation. The combination of fractures resulting in a trans-styloid, trans-scaphoid, and trans-triquetral perilunate fracture dislocation is extremely rare. Early recognition and diagnosis of these injuries is prudent to restore patient function and prevent morbidity. Read More

The Neck of Femur Fracture in an Elderly Patient with Schizophrenia and Parkinsonism Managed with Dual Mobility Total Hip Replacement- A Rare Case Report.

J Orthop Case Rep 2021 Jun;11(6):32-35

Department of Orthopaedics, Grant Government Medical College, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Introduction: Neck of femur fractures is the most common fractures in elderly people as they present with osteoporosis. There is a higher chance of proximal femur fracture in a schizophrenic patient as there is a loss of bone mineral density due to a drug-induced increase in the level of prolactin and immobility. Patients with Parkinson's disease were at higher risk for the development of hip fractures due to gait disturbances and instability. Read More

Secondary displacement in distal forearm fractures in children: adequate positioning of the wrist in the cast is more important than cast index.

J Pediatr Orthop B 2022 Apr 11. Epub 2022 Apr 11.

Department for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Clinical Hospital Dubrava, Zagreb, Croatia.

The objective of this study was to assess whether the positioning of the wrist joint in the cast in such a manner that it counteracts the direction of angulation of fragments is more important than the cast index in the prevention of secondary displacements in distal forearm fractures. A retrospective review of all pediatric patients (0-16 years of age) who were hospitalized in our institution with displaced fractures of the distal forearm (either isolated fractures of the distal radius or both bone fractures) who underwent subsequent closed reduction and splinting in the period from August 2018 to October 2020. Patients with physeal fractures and open fractures, and skeletally mature patients were excluded from the study. Read More

Cleveland Clinic Foundation, OH, USA.

Background: Failure to recognize a potential wrist arthrotomy may lead to missed septic arthritis and devastating sequelae. The saline load test is routinely used to recognize traumatic arthrotomies of other joints; however, there are limited data optimizing this test for the wrist. The purpose of this study was to investigate and perform saline load testing to identify traumatic arthrotomies of the wrist. Read More
