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’.

Half of nonosteoporotic patients will develop post-traumatic arthritis, specifically limited radial deviation and wrist flexion. These options include percutaneous pinning, external fixation, and ORIF using plating.

Figure 1 Figure 1. There is an increased risk of interosseous intercarpal injury if the ulnar variance the difference in height between the distal end of the ulna and the distal end of the radius is more than 2mm and there is fracture into the wrist joint. The deformity is then reduced with appropriate closed reduction, depending on the type of deformity. The child usually presents with a painful and swollen wrist. Distal radius fractures are common.

Lateral view is taken with the elbow adducted to the side. A—extra-articular, B—partial articular, and C—complete articular which can further subdivided into nine main ffactura and 27 subgroups depending on the fractuga of communication and direction of displacement. Associated traumatic lesions are ligamentous rupture, nerve compression and compartment syndrome. Greenstick fractures are stable fractures as a part of the bone remains intact and unbroken so this type of fracture normally causes a bend to the injured part, rather than a distinct deformity, which is problematic.


There is no disruption of carpal arc I. On the left a fracture of the ulnar styloid process not visible on standard radiography, but clearly demonstrated with MR. One of the most important characteristics is whether a fracture is extraarticular or intraarticular. A Colles fracture as seen on X-ray: Intraarticular fractures either involve the radiocarpal joint, distal radioulnar joint, or both. American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials”.

There is also scapholunate dissociation as a result of associated ligamentous rupture with volar tilt of lunate indicating volar flexion instability VISI. Notice the loss of radiocarpal joint space indicating osteoarthritis. On the left a patient with an intraarticular fracture with dorsal tilt i. Forus, none of the classification systems demonstrate good liability.

Greenstick fracture

This was followed by the use of plating in Case 11 Case A distal radius fracturealso known as wrist fractureis a break of the part of the radius bone which is close to the wrist. People usually present with a history of fractkra on an outstretched hand and complaint of pain and swelling around the wrist, sometimes with deformity around the wrist.


Diagnosis may be evident clinically when the distal radius is deformed, but should be confirmed by X-ray. When these epomyms are used, an accurate description of the fracture characteristics should always be included in the report 5.

Closed reduction of a distal radius fracture involves first anesthetizing the torhs area with a hematoma blockintravenous regional anesthesia Bier’s blocksedation or a general anesthesia. Non-accidental injury more commonly causes spiral twisting fractures but a blow on the forearm or shin could cause a green stick fracture.

Cortical buckle fractures occur when there is axial loading of a long bone.

Buckle Fractures (for Parents)

Two newer treatment are fragment-specific fixation and fixed-angle volar plating. Retrieved from ” https: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

On the left an intraarticular fracture of the distal radius with shortening of the radius. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Greenstick fractures. Pediatric fractures can be classified as complete and incomplete: Discussion Longitudinal compression of the bone can cause incomplete fractures in children because of the unique relative plasticity of their bones.
