Clinical and radiological results of distal radius fractures

W JanskyT Seeger


We report retrospective analysis of results of conservative and operative methods of distal radial fractures, which was carried out to control our treatment methods. Three hundred and ninety-three patients were treated from 1. 7. 1991 to 1. 7. 1992, 361 (91.9%) were followed up to 14 months with average age of 60.1 years (16 to 92 years). Three hundred and twenty-seven patients (90.6%) were treated by conservative methods, 9 (2.5%) by percutaneous pinning, 21 (5.8%) by transfixation through bases of metacarpal bones and 4 (1.1%) by ventral supporting plates. Clinical examination showed 69.6% good, 24.9% fair and 5.5% poor results. Radiological results according to AO-scheme were compared with clinical results, and 70% clinical results correlated with radiological results. Our results show that comminuted and displaced intraarticular fractures AO-classification C 2, C 3 are indications of transfixation and A 3 and some exceptional cases of C 1 are indications of percutaneous pinning.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
