Acute compartment syndrome of the forearm: A case report of radius fracture with concomitant brachial artery transaction.

Med J Malaysia 2021 Jul;76(4):603-605

Universiti Sains Malaysia, School of Medical Sciences, Department of Emergency Medicine, Kubang Kerian, Malaysia.

Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is a surgical emergency that requires timely recognition and early management for a good outcome. We report a case of a 71- year-old male seen at the Emergency Department of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Malaysia, on anticoagulant therapy for valvular atrial fibrillation, who had sustained a closed fracture of the left distal end radius following a fall. Examination of the left upper limb showed deformity and tenderness over the left wrist, associated with swelling and a tense anterior compartment with blisters formation and rapid expansion of hematoma at the cubital fossa away from the fracture site.

Outcome Metrics in the Treatment of Distal Radius Fractures in Patients Aged Above 50 Years: A Systematic Review.

Hand (N Y) 2021 Jul 21:15589447211028919. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Stanford University, Redwood City, CA, USA.

Background: The inclusion of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) serves to better quantify aspects of patient outcomes missed with objective measures, including radiographic indices and physical examination findings. We hypothesize that PROMs are inconsistently and heterogeneously captured in the treatment of distal radius fractures.

Methods: We performed a systematic review following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis guidelines of all level I and II randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of distal radius fracture treatment of any modality for those older than 50 years of age from January 2008 to January 2018.

Supernumerary extensor pollicis longus tendon masking an extensor pollicis longus rupture following non-surgical treatment of a distal radius fracture.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jul 15;14(7). Epub 2021 Jul 15.

Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Extensor pollicis longus tendon pathology is a recognised complication following non-surgical treatment of non-displaced distal radius fractures. Tendon entrapment typically presents with pain, but preservation of thumb retropulsion during complete rupture results in loss of active thumb retropulsion and tenodesis effect. We present the case of a 52-year-old woman who developed extensor pollicis longus tendon entrapment with full active thumb extension following a non-displaced distal radius fracture. Read More

Absence of Flexor Carpi Radialis Identified During Volar Approach for Fixation of Distal Radius Fracture: A Case Report.

J Orthop Case Rep 2021 Mar;11(3):42-44

Department of Orthopaedic, Amandeep Hospital, G.T. Road, Near Model Town, Amritsar. Punjab. India.

Introduction: Volar locking plate fixation of distal radius fractures is commonly performed because of its good clinical outcomes. The flexor carpi radialis (FCR) approach is one of the most popular approaches to dissecting the volar side of the distal radius because of its simplicity and safety.

Ultrasound in forearm fractures: a pragmatic study assessing the utility of Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) in identifying and managing distal radius fractures.

Emerg Radiol 2021 Jul 8. Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust, Queens Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, London, RM7 0AG, UK.

Background: Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) is a safe, non-invasive tool for identifying distal radius fractures and can potentially be utilised to assist clinicians to reduce displaced fractures. We aim to test whether PoCUS is accurate to identify distal radius fractures and to determine how PoCUS performs as a tool to confirm a successful fracture reduction.
