PURPOSE Intra-articular fractures of the distal radius are common injuries, but the correlation between ligament attachments and fracture location is poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to assess the location of intra-articular fractures compared to the known ligament attachments of the distal radius. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed computed tomography scans of acute intra-articular distal radius fractures performed at 1 institution between 2001 and 2008. Of 145… CONTINUE READING
