Seven fresh cadaveric specimens were used to determine the loss of forearm rotation with varying distal radius fracture malalignment patterns. Uniplanar malunion patterns consisting of dorsal tilt, radioulnar translation, or radial shortening were simulated by creating an osteotomy at the distal end of the radius, orienting the distal fragment position(More)
Ten fresh-frozen cadaveric thumbs were utilized to determine whether ultrasound is a useful tool for diagnosing ruptures of the ulnar collateral ligament. The integrity of the ulnar collateral ligament was evaluated by ultrasound and confirmed by dissection. Partial ruptures were produced by gentle manual loading in four of the cases and were all correctly(More)
