Fracture of the distal radius is one of the commonest injuries affecting upper limb


#1

Fracture of the distal radius is one of the commonest injuries affecting upper limb, particularly in the older age. Most distal radius fractures result from low-energy mechanisms and can be successfully treated nonsurgically or with a variety of surgical techniques if indicated. High-energy distal radius fractures can involve extensive comminution or bone loss with concomitant ligament, soft-tissue, and neurovascular injuries. In patients with complex distal radius fractures, reconstruction of the distal radius, ulna, and triangular fibrocartilage complex can be challenging. Effective restoration of the bony architecture requires intimate knowledge of the anatomy of the distal radius, a thorough understanding of the goals of treatment, versatility in surgical approaches, and familiarity with multiple fixation options.Thia algorithm based on anatomic consideration of distal radius and helps alot in dicision making in management of complex disal radius ,
