Should an ulnar styloid fracture be fixed following volar plate fixation of a distal radial fracture?

BACKGROUND Ulnar styloid fractures often occur in association with distal radial fractures. The purpose of this study was to determine whether an associated ulnar styloid fracture following stable fixation of a distal radial fracture has any effect on wrist function or on the development of chronic distal radioulnar joint instability. METHODS One hundred… CONTINUE READING
