PURPOSE Extensor tendon injury after osteosynthesis of distal radius fractures is a well-documented complication. It has been shown to be associated with screw protrusion through the dorsal cortex, or plunging of the drill bit into the overlying tendon. It is difficult to determine screw length and protrusion using the standard anteroposterior and lateral intraoperative fluoroscopic images because of the triangular configuration of the distal radius and Lister tubercle. In fractures with a… CONTINUE READING
