We reviewed 260 patients who had been treated non-operatively for a dorsally displaced distal radius fracture a mean 6.3 (range 2.5-12.7) years earlier, in an attempt to find the limits of displacement compatible with a good clinical outcome. We excluded patients with previous or later injuries to the same limb. Bivariate analysis revealed a highly(More)
BACKGROUND Distal radial fractures occur very frequently. Most are dorsally displaced (Colles' fracture). In contrast to previously, approximately a quarter of these patients now undergo surgery. This is more than the number that is reduced and immobilised in a plaster cast. Volar plate osteosynthesis is now the most common type of surgery. There is great(More)
Reduction of fractures of the distal radius is often supplemented with percutaneous pinning, but there is little evidence that this affects the clinical outcome. A total of 43 patients with pinned, and 296 with conservatively-treated, fractures were reviewed a mean of 6 (range 3-13) years after injury. We found controls among the conservatively-treated(More)
Both wrists in 189 patients who had been treated for dorsally displaced distal radius fracture were X-rayed with both right angle and 15° tilted lateral views. Two investigators measured the radial tilt. The mean difference in the angles recorded by the two investigators was 2.5° for the tilted and 3.7° for the right angle projections (p = 4.7 × 10(-8)).(More)
Background An increased scapholunate gap is sometimes seen in patients with a distal radial fracture. The question remains as to whether this represents a scapholunate ligament injury that requires treatment. Questions/purposes We wished to examine the natural history of an increased scapholunate gap in patients following an extra-articular distal radial(More)
