How malunion of the distal radius affects the kinematics of the distal radioulnar joint in vivo was evaluated. A novel computed tomography image-based technique was used to quantify radioulnar motion in both wrists of 9 patients who had unilateral malunited distal radius fractures. In the injured wrists dorsal angulation averaged 21 degrees +/- 6 degrees,(More)
INTRODUCTION Malunion (dorsal angulation, radial inclination and shortening) continues to be the most common complication following the closed treatment of distal radius fractures. Patients with malunited distal radius fractures typically have radiocarpal and radioulnar pain, as well as limitations in supination and pronation, grip strength and wrist(More)
Weakness of the neck extensors can lead to "dropped head syndrome", a condition of progressive cervical kyphosis in which a patient is unable to hold their head up against the force of gravity. This condition can be associated with structural abnormalities of the spine as found in ankylosing spondylitis and vertebral fractures. Neuromuscular disorders, such(More)
