Clinical profile of patients with fractures of distal end of radius

Author(s): Dr. Namdev Parshuram June and Dr. Ajay MB
Abstract: Introduction: Smith in 1854 described a volar angulated fracture of the distal radius with a ‘Garden Spade’ deformity. In the reverse Colle’s fracture the hand and wrist are displaced volarly with respect to forearm. This fracture pattern included both extra articular as well as intra articular involvement and also formed part of the fracture dislocation of the wrist.
Methodology: Routine examination of blood was done for hemoglobin percentage, total and differential WBC counts, fasting blood sugar, blood urea, serum creatinine, bleeding and clotting time, HIV and Hbs Ag. Examination of urine was done for presence of albumin and sugar. Blood pressure and ECG were recorded in all patients. Preparation of the part was done on the day of surgery. Tetanus toxoid injection and intravenous antibiotic were given to all patients pre-operatively.
Results: Most of the fractures are sustained due to RTA and fall on the out stretched hand and are usually intra articular displaced.
Conclusion: Fractures occur in older individuals as a result of a trivial trauma /fall owing to the lack of bone density.
