What is a Distal Radius Fracture?

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.
