Worst distal radius ever…

Orthopedics, Trauma, Wrist XR, XR


Not much to talk about other than this is one of the worst distal radius fractures I’ve ever seen:

Worst DR fx everWorst DR fx ever 2

Needless to say, this ended up in the operating room.  Yes, it was open.  You can also see dislocation of the carpus away from the radius and ulna as well as multiple carpal bone fractures. This was very close to a full hand amputation at the wrist!
