ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Fracture of the distal radius

History: This 28 yo woman who fell onto an outstretched right hand while walking on an icy sidewalk. Pt reported severe, instantaneous wrist pain. Pt reported to the Emergency Room where the x-rays were taken.

Findings: A-P, oblique and lateral radiographs of the wrist show conminuted distal radial fracture with a 0.8 cm dorsal displacement of the distal radial fragment. The following measurements were within the normal range: Radial height 10.1 mm, Radial inclination 21 degrees, Ulnar variance 1 mm. The fracture extends into the joint.

Ddx: Distal radial fracture

Dxhow: Radiographic and Clinical Correlation

Exam: Right wrist exam: Edematous soft tissues overlying the radius and ulna. Non-erythematous, non-bruised, non-excoriated overlying skin. Very limited range of motion in all directions.

No MeSH data available.
