    Fractures of the distal radius are extremely common injuries, which are steadily becoming a public health issue. One of the most common complications following distal radius fractures is still malunion of the distal radius. This review of the literature surrounding distal radius malunion covers...

    Background: Our center evaluates all distal radial fractures with traction radiographs before splinting. Although investigations of various imaging modalities to evaluate distal radial fractures have been presented in the literature, to our knowledge the use of traction radiographs has not been...

    Radial head fractures represent the most common elbow fractures. Undisplaced fractures usually occur in isolation and can be treated nonsurgically. Displaced fractures should be treated surgically. Simple two-part fractures can easily be handled by osteosynthesis, but comminuted fractures pose a...
