Predicting alignment after closed reduction and casting of distal radius fractures.

Abstract

PURPOSE We sought to independently validate the McQueen equation and LaFontaine's criteria as predictors of instability in a large series of distal radius fractures treated nonsurgically. In addition, we hypothesized that restoring the volar cortical integrity (ie, volar hook) would be another factor that would independently predict the maintenance of a… (More)
