Flashcards in Wrist Deck (20):
1

Radiocarpal Dislocation

Disruption of radiocarpal ligaments and usually radial and ulnar styloid.

2

Post Closed Reduction

After procedure to return bone to original position without surgery.

3

Torus Fracture

Incomplete fracture of a long bone due to compression.
A.K.A buckle fracture.

4

Greenstick Fracture

Fracture on convex side of bone without subsequent fracture on concave side, due to the bone bending during injury.

Smith's Fracture

Fracture of distal radius with anterior displacement of fracture.
Possibly commonuted: Salter-Harris (child), Greenstick (child).

6

Post Open Reduction Internal Fixation

After surgery to return bone into original position and using supports to fix in position.

7

Avascular Necrosis Scaphoid Fracture

Death of scaphoid bone tissue due to lack of blood supply.
