Volar collapse after dorsal plating of comminuted distal radius fractures.

Between 1997 and 2001, 58 patients received dorsal plating for comminuted distal radius fractures. In 8 of these patients, subsequent collapse led to palmar flexion deformity, loss of rotation, and hardware prominence. In retrospectively reviewing this subgroup's range of motion, radiographic volar tilt, and complications, including tenosynovitis and… CONTINUE READING
