The aim of this study was to compare bridging external fixation with volar locked plating in patients with unstable distal radial fractures regarding functional outcome. A systematic search was performed in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Medline and EMBASE. All randomized controlled trials that compared bridging external fixation(More)
The purpose of this systematic review is to assess the prevalence of complications following volar locking plate fixation of distal radial fractures. A computer-based search was carried out using EMBASE and PUBMED/MEDLINE. Only prospective comparative and prospective cohort studies that presented data concerning complications after treatment of distal(More)
In most hospitals, children with acute wrist trauma are routinely referred for radiography. To develop and validate a clinical decision rule to decide whether radiography in children with wrist trauma is required. We prospectively developed and validated a clinical decision rule in two study populations. All children who presented in the emergency(More)
OBJECTIVES Acute wrist trauma in children is one of the most frequent reasons for visiting the emergency department (ED). Radiographic imaging in children with wrist trauma is mostly performed routinely to confirm or rule out a fracture. The aim of this study was to determine how many radiographs of the wrist show a fracture in children following wrist(More)
BACKGROUND Acute trauma of the wrist is one of the most frequent reasons for visiting the Emergency Department. These patients are routinely referred for radiological examination. Most X-rays however, do not reveal any fractures. A clinical decision rule determining the need for X-rays in patients with acute wrist trauma may help to percolate and select(More)
BACKGROUND Up to 30% of patients suffer from long-term functional restrictions following conservative treatment of distal radius fractures. Whether duration of cast immobilisation influences functional outcome remains unclear. METHODS/DESIGN The aim of the study is to evaluate whether the duration of immobilization of non or minimally displaced distal(More)
BACKGROUND Although only 39 % of patients with wrist trauma have sustained a fracture, the majority of patients is routinely referred for radiography. The purpose of this study was to derive and externally validate a clinical decision rule that selects patients with acute wrist trauma in the Emergency Department (ED) for radiography. METHODS This(More)
The increasing incidence of distal radius fracture is thought to be due to the aging population. Surprisingly, some authors have reported a decrease in the incidence of distal radius fracture. Moreover, the type-specific incidence of distal radial fracture classified according to fracture severity is not well documented. The aim of this population-based(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the association between arm-specific disability measured with the QuickDASH questionaire and radiological criteria in patients with extra-articular distal radial fractures. A consecutive series of 385 patients were initially treated non-operatively for an extra-articular distal radial fracture and 257 (69 %) patients(More)
