A distal radius fracture, also known as wrist fracture, is a break of the part of the radius bone .. For torus fractures, a splint may be sufficient and casting may be avoided. The position of the wrist in cast is usually slight flexion and ulnar deviation. Torus fractures, or buckle fractures, are extremely common injuries in children. The word torus is derived from the Latin word ‘Tori’ meaning. English Translation, Synonyms, Definitions and Usage Examples of Spanish Word ‘fractura torus’.

This arthritis can worsen over time. On the left another patient after unsuccessful treatment. After that, Robert William Smith, professor of surgery in Dublin, Ireland, first described the characteristics of volar displacement of distal radius fractures. In displaced distal radius fracture, in those with low demands, the hand can be cast until the person feels comfortable. Closed reduction of a distal radius fracture involves first anesthetizing the affected area with a hematoma blockintravenous regional anesthesia Bier’s blocksedation or a general anesthesia.
The deformity is then reduced with appropriate closed manipulative depending on the type of deformity reductionafter which a splint or cast is placed and an X-ray is taken to ensure that the horus was successful.
On the left a post-operative image of a Salter-Harris II fracture, which is held in place with two pins after closed reduction. If the reduction is maintained, then the cast should continue for 4 to 6 weeks.
Many techniques of fixation are now available, including percutaneous pinning, intramedullary pinning, external fixation, and internal fixation with customized implants, including the Distal Volar Radius DVR system. Ulnar styloid process fracture increases the risk of TFCC injury by a factor of 5: A greenstick fracture is a fracture in a young, soft bone in which the bone bends and breaks.
Always mention whether the fracture is transverse good prognosisoblique or comminuted multifragmented. Percutaneous pinning is preferred to plating due to similar clinical and radiological outcomes, as well as lower costs, when compared to plating, despite increased risk of superficial infections. When these epomyms are used, an accurate description of the fracture characteristics should always be included in the report 5.
There is loss of radial inclination and radial shortening, dorsal tilt and an articular step-off. On the left a volar-type Barton’s trus.
Views Read Edit View history. In young patients, the injury requires greater force and results in more displacement, particularly to the articular surface.
Buckle fractures in children: These include bowing, torus, greenstick and stress factures. Initially, a backslab or a sugar torua splint is applied to allow swelling to expand and subsequently a cast is applied. The Journal of hand surgery. In reference 6 a link is provided to download the illustrations of the Muller AO Classification of Fractures.
Archived from the original on 2 July InAbraham Colles described the characteristics of distal end radius fracture.
Positioning PA view should be taken with the wrist and elbow at shoulder height. Dislocation of the radiocarpal joint is the hallmark of Barton’s fractures.
Resnick D, Kang HS. If the fracture affects the median nerveonly then is a reduction indicated. First the arm is placed under traction to unlock the fragments. On the left another patient with malunion and osteoarthritis.
Basilar skull fracture Blowout fracture Mandibular fracture Nasal fracture Le Fort fracture of skull Zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture Zygoma fracture. D ICD – More force is required to produce a torua in males than females.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. These are partial fractures, since only one part of the bone is broken and the other side is bent.
