Colles' Fracture

Colles Fracture


Presentation

  • We conclude that those individuals presenting with Colles' fracture may also have hearing loss and conversely, patients presenting with a conductive hearing loss may be at risk of developing the further symptoms of osteoporosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is suggested that the measurement methods and the present findings may serve as guidance in physiotherapy for these patients, especially if the uninjured side is used as reference.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 59 years old post-menopausal woman presented with a history of acute low-back-pain. She had menopause for 12 years. She gave history of colles' fracture at about two years back. Her mother died as consequences of femoral neck fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a case of Clostridial gas gangrene following closed reduction of a Colles' fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The results in 75 of 105 patients with Older type II/III (AO type A2.2, A3.1, A3.2) Colles' fractures, treated with non-bridging external fixation are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Asymptomatic
  • Asymptomatic post-menopausal osteoporosis is common but some-times associated with pain and deformity. Symptomatic osteoporosis is usually associated with fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We conclude that single-photon absorptiometry appears to be a useful tool for screening normal populations of asymptomatic women for prediction of hip or Colles' fracture risk even though it has limited usefulness in prediction of spinal fracture risk[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Because it is asymptomatic until a fracture occurs, osteoporosis can be difficult to diagnose. Additionally, serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) tend to be normal in these patients.[kenhub.com]
Malnutrition
  • .), gastrointestinal disorders (malnutrition, malabsorption syndromes, vitamin D deficiency, etc.), drugs (anticoagulants, chemotherapeutic agents, corticosteroids, and others), and more.[kenhub.com]
Aspiration
  • Abstract There are few complications associated with intravenous regional anaesthesia but convulsions with loss of consciousness induced by local anaesthetic toxicity may result in pulmonary aspiration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Acute Low Back Pain
  • A 59 years old post-menopausal woman presented with a history of acute low-back-pain. She had menopause for 12 years. She gave history of colles' fracture at about two years back. Her mother died as consequences of femoral neck fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • We suggest that ulnar wrist pain following Colles' fracture is caused by incongruity of the distal radioulnar joint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is suggested that the measurement methods and the present findings may serve as guidance in physiotherapy for these patients, especially if the uninjured side is used as reference.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In addition, the results suggest that it may be possible to use VAS scores to predict treatment requirements, since those patients who require fewer visits have, on average, higher initial VAS scores.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The Colles' fracture group had better eyesight than the control group (p 0.022), but worse hearing, particularly at lower frequencies (p less than 0.0001 at 500 Hz), suggesting a conductive hearing loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The results are broadly in line with the few other published prospective studies suggesting only a modest role for these factors in influencing susceptibility to fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Mononeuropathy
  • Mononeuropathies in the proximal forearm have not been reported. We present two patients with Colles' fracture with proximal forearm neuropathies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Delayed Menarche
  • In women delayed menarche, over the age of 15 years, was associated with a modest increased risk [HR 1.5 (range 1.1-2.0)].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Skills Assess radiographs and describe the pattern of injury Recognize fractures associated with osteoporosis and initiate a workup for it. Be able to counsel a patient on lifestyle modifications that prevent osteoporosis.[orthopaedicsone.com]
  • An increasing awareness of osteoporosis has led to these injuries being termed fragility fractures, the implication being that a workup for osteoporosis should be a standard part of treatment.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • CONCLUSIONS: Brazilian orthopedists have concordant opinions regarding conservative treatment methods and the use of bone grafts. There were conflicting opinions regarding surgical treatment methods, classification types and complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bone loss during the course of treatment will have a direct effect upon the prognosis, so different treatment should be proposed for different patterns of fractures. Active exercise should be made to improve the recovery of bone mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract We carried out a randomised, prospective, multicentre clinical trial of the treatment of Colles' fractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In addition, the results suggest that it may be possible to use VAS scores to predict treatment requirements, since those patients who require fewer visits have, on average, higher initial VAS scores.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Colles' fracture of the distal radius is a common injury; however, controversy exists over the treatment of unstable fractures of this type.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • CONCLUSIONS: Bone loss during the course of treatment will have a direct effect upon the prognosis, so different treatment should be proposed for different patterns of fractures. Active exercise should be made to improve the recovery of bone mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • The earlier a diagnosis is made and treatment is commenced the better the prognosis. Aetiology: The aetiology is uncertain. The most widely accepted theory proposes the existence of an abnormal reflex arc within the sympathetic nervous system.[slideshare.net]

Etiology

  • Compartment syndromes may be important as etiologic and complicating factors. Hyperbaric oxygen may have therapeutic value but its use has not improved on survival rates achieved during World War II with surgery and antibiotics alone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Although Colles Fractures are a heterogeneous group of injuries, the etiology is usually the same: a fall on an outstretched arm. The position of the hand is important in determining the type of fracture that results.[handandwristinstitute.com]

  • Pathophysiology The pathophysiology of a fracture is rather obvious: more load is imparted to the bone than the bone can sustain. Osteoporotic bone can break with very low impact.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Prevention

  • In order to prevent the occurrence of radius fractures and their adverse outcomes, understanding the effect of both extrinsic and intrinsic contributors to fracture risk is essential.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To prevent an injury to the head, most people put their hand out to hit the ground first, so the wrist usually gets injured.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • They constitute an appropriate group for studies aimed at prevention of fracture in the elderly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We concluded that secondary displacement of the distal radius is partly mediated through the metaphyseal cancellous bone defect, and to prevent malunion in dorsal angulation, operative treatment or possibly filling of the defect should be considered even[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prevention depends on proper debridement of wounds and open fractures. Compartment syndromes may be important as etiologic and complicating factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
