Supplemental pinning improves the stability of external fixation in distal radius fractures during simulated finger and forearm motion.

Abstract

External fixation is commonly used in the treatment of distal radius fractures. In this in vitro study, we investigated changes in fracture stability when using supplemental radial styloid pinning in combination with external fixation. Eight previously frozen cadaveric upper extremities were mounted in a computer-controlled wrist-loading apparatus. This… (More)
