Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.
Ct scan"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally"
surgery or cast? Why .
Orthopedic consult: Displaced cuneiform fractures often require an open reduction and internal fixation with screws. This is due to tarsometarsal joint instability. Additional important considerations include - intra-articular vs extra-articular and plane of the fracture. Isolated cuneiform fractures are rare and more likely to happen in association with metatarsal injuries. You need to consult an orthopedic surgeon! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
