Distal radius fractures are frequently referred to as wrist fractures, however they actually involve this particular bone. Your distal radius is as shown. This bone in the middle is a long bone. Although it comes down here and is a portion of your wrist, the bone that makes up your elbow actually originates there. You might see a scar like this down here if you shattered your distal radius after falling on an outstretched hand like this and required surgery. The majority of the time, if you have a distal radius fracture, you can have a scar that is right here. Occasionally, there may be a small zigzag right here. And today, the majority of the time, they are repaired by the hand surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, using plates and screws. They therefore place a plate there and collect all the tiny shards and fragments of a fracture. After that, a hand and wrist treatment is really the only option.
