Distal radioulnar joint
injuries associated with fractures of the distal radius.
The patient was sent for radiographic studies and diagnostic ultrasound, in order to examine the integrity of the distal radioulnar joint
, ulnar collateral ligament and TFCC.
Rayhack described ulno-radial pinning with fixation of distal radioulnar joint
A cadaveric study of the anatomy and stability of the distal radioulnar joint
in the coronal and transverse planes.
The effect of dorsally angulated distal radius fractures on distal radioulnar joint
congruency and forearm rotation.
Radial shortening <5 mm at distal radioulnar joint
The patient's injury remained neurovascularly intact, but radiographic studies revealed distal radioulnar joint
separation, with loss of radial height along the ulnar aspect (Fig.
1 (5%) patients had pain in the distal radioulnar joint
46) A shortened radius increases the strain on the TFCC, which may result in distal radioulnar joint
However, more often than not, distal radius fractures involve the radiocarpal joint and or the distal radioulnar joint
Topics in hand surgery are represented by a characterization of the distal radioulnar joint
and a review of the treatment of ulnar collateral ligament injuries to the thumb.
Kapandji (20) described double intrafocal pinning into the fracture surface and Rayhack (21) described ulno-radial pinning with fixation of distal radioulnar joint
