31 yr-old with right wrist fracture via injury Oct. 2015. ORIF & median nerve decompressed. January xray: collapse of distal radial reduction.....?

31 yr-old with right wrist fracture via injury Oct. 2015. ORIF & median nerve decompressed. January xray: collapse of distal radial reduction.....?

Unfortunate: If the reduction has been lost, unfortunately you are probably going to need further surgery to get the fracture back in anatomical alignment. The danger in not doing this will be to develop post traumatic arthritis and a poor outcome. You might want to consider a second opinion from a hand specialist before proceeding with a second surgery if it can be obtained quickly. ...Read more
