Hand Surgery and Upper Extremity Center, "Carlos E. Ottolenghi" Institute, Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Tte. Gral. Juan Domingo Perón 4190, CABA, C1199ABB Buenos Aires, Argentina. Electronic address:

The aim of the present study was to evaluate long-term functional and radiographic outcome in the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) for Galeazzi fracture-dislocation after anatomic reduction and rigid fixation of the radius. Fourteen patients, with an average age of 38 years, presenting with Galeazzi fracture-dislocation treated by open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of the radius and closed reduction of the DRUJ were retrospectively evaluated, with a minimum follow-up of 6 years. At final evaluation (mean: 8 years), the DRUJ was objectively and subjectively evaluated for range of motion (RoM), grip strength, ballottement test, pain on axial loading, function on visual analog scale (VAS) and DASH score.

Objective Outcome Measures Continue to Improve from 6 to 12 Months after Conservatively Treated Distal Radius Fractures in the Elderly-A Prospective Evaluation of 50 Patients.

J Clin Med 2021 Apr 22;10(9). Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Department of Clinical Medicine, HEALTH, Aarhus University, 8000 Aarhus, Denmark.

"Snapping" of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon in asymptomatic population.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Apr 26;22(1):387. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Gaziosmanpasa University, Tokat, Turkey.

Background: Extensor carpi ulnaris tendinopathy (ECU) can be one cause of ulnar side wrist pain and it is more prominent in pronation-supination movements against resistance. In supination, flexion, and ulnar deviation within the ulnar groove, the tendon is tense and becomes predisposed to subluxation or dislocation. Snapping occurs during this dislocation and relocation.
