A fracture of the radius is the most common fracture. A distal radius fracture is a fracture that can be a very simple fracture that will require only gypsum or light casting -with the drawbacks and benefits of the treatment.
Sometimes a radius fracture requires surgery. Distal radius fracture requires surgery for different reasons at different ages. In children, the purpose of surgery is to prevent deformation (deformation) over the years and prevent a situation where an abnormal angle is created in the distant forearm.Sometimes a radius fracture requires surgery. Distal radius fracture requires surgery for different reasons at different ages. In children, the purpose of surgery is to prevent deformation (deformation) over the years and prevent a situation where an abnormal angle is created in the distant forearm.
In adults, the reference is also to the angle of the fracture, but because of age, of course, they do not address the issue of worsening distortion with increasing growth. A good surgeon also refers to the integrity of the joint surface and the condition of the ligaments around the joint. Distal radius surgery can be done openly (i.e. make a large incision or multiple incisions and see the fracture with the naked eye and fix it with braces and screws) or be closed. To reduce the fracture (put the fracture in place - while under X-ray) and then fix the fracture in place may require sedation .
Fractures in the distal radius in children or hand fractures in the child in general are the most common. In fact, the radius and ulna can be stable or unstable and in fact an unstable fracture poses a major challenge to a surgeon. Usually due to fracture repair surgery scars remain but long-term damage is relatively rare.
Practically, a distal radius fracture repair surgery aims to restore optimal function to the injured wrist. It is not always necessary to perform surgery on a fracture of a distal radius (remote in standard Hebrew), sometimes only a reduction (with use of an x-ray reflector) will suffice. Good reduction is a good solution. Sometimes the nature of the fracture of the distal radius is one that requires surgery to repair a distal radius fracture and the main reason for choosing a good surgeon is to get a good fracture position, bone quality and expected level of activity in the patient with a distal radius fracture that has been diagnosed.
A distant radius fracture is characterized by a partition called bimodal partition. It is worth noting: Osteoporosis in women is not the same as in men, and it mainly affects the spongy bone so that we create a phenomenon we call "egg shell bone".
Therefore, sometimes fractures in older people are more complex.
Surgery to repair a radius or ulna distal fracture or a fracture involving both a radius and a distal ulna is complex and an experienced surgeon should perform it.
We are waiting for you at the clinic
We would be happy to adapt the right treatment to the right fracture be it distal radius surgery, reduction (return to position) with or without fixation of distal radius or mild cast that will give you a good function at the end of healing.
