Open DRUJ reduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) injuries must be recognized at the time of surgical treatment of wrist and forearm injuries, as appropriate treatment is necessary for optimal outcomes. Care should be taken to restore radial height and address ligamentous injuries of the TFCC to prevent DRUJ instability, subsequent ulnar-sided wrist pain, and loss of forearm rotation. In the trauma patient with an open distal radius and ulna fractures and DRUJ disruption, an open TFCC repair was key to re-establishing stability after fixation of his fractures.
