Abstract: Objective: The study focusses on short term outcomes of locking compression plating for treatment of Galeazzi fracture- dislocation using Anderson & Sisk score.
Introduction: The Galeazzi fracture is an unstable fracture-dislocation of the forearm that includes a fracture of the shaft of the radius and a dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ). The goal of the treatment is an anatomic reduction and a rigid internal fixation of the radial fracture and also restoration of normal anatomy of the distal radio-ulnar joint.
Methodology: A cohort of 15 patients with Galeazzi fracture-dislocation treated with locking compression plates between January 2016 to January 2017 were assessed for 6 months and final result was analysed using Anderson & Sisk score.
Results: Using the Anderson & Sisk scoring system 86.66% patients (13) achieved excellent results, 6.66% patients (1) achieved satisfactory results and 6.66% patients (1) achieved unsatisfactory results.
