    An encyclopedia entry for "fracture of radius" is presented. It refers to a common type of fracture involving the radius, the shorter of the two bones found in the forearm. It is noted that treatment of the fracture depends on the severity of the injury. Supportive bandage is for minor injuries...

    The authors report a painful non-union of the distal radius in a 28-year-old man who sustained a gunshot wound to his distal forearm at the age of 13. The non-union was complicated with dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) and ulnar impaction. The non-union was reconstructed 15...
