Although rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon is a well-known complication of distal radial fractures, a number of patients rupture the EPL because of other conditions. We have retrospectively studied the aetiology of 27 ruptures of the EPL in 26 consecutive patients. Of 19 patients with injured wrists 12 had distal radial fractures, five(More)
Osteonecrosis of the metacarpal head is rare and of unknown cause. We describe a 17-year-old girl with osteonecrosis of the fourth metacarpal head and a mutated prothrombin 20210A gene, which suggests a possible relation between a hypercoagulable state and osteonecrosis of the metacarpal head.
PURPOSE To find out whether it is possible to evaluate the healing of wrist arthrodesis, carried out with a metallic spider plate, by means of 64-slice computed tomography (CT). MATERIAL AND METHODS 18 CT examinations were performed in 12 patients 2 weeks to 37 months following scapholunate advanced collapse (SLAC) arthrodesis fixed with a metallic plate.(More)
The operative treatment of mallet fractures of more than one third of the articular surface is controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the complications and functional outcome of extension block pinning technique. Thirty-six consecutive patients with mallet fractures that involved more than one third of the joint surface were treated by(More)
Twenty-seven patients with intraarticular fractures of the distal radius with a step of more than 1 mm in the joint surface after attempted closed reduction, were treated by reduction under arthroscopic control and percutaneous fixation. All fractures healed without measurable incongruity of the joint surface and at follow-up 3 to 38 months after surgery 19(More)
