Get an x-ray: If u mean spontaneously popped out, only a handfull of autoimmune conditions could lead to that, and uncommonly. If after any form of injury/trauma, then possible. Either way, it should be examined and likely x-rayed by a dr. Urgent care clinics usually can do both in same location. ...Read more
X-ray of both hands = narrowing radiocarpal articulation on both side. What does tht mean? Joint space ok, no ulnar styloid, no erosive changes.
Degenerative disease: Details like those from a report favor early degenerative disease with attendant loss of articular cartilage, but seeing the images is best to ensure this is not just normal variant anatomy (given the fact that it is bilateral). Next month patients will be able to upload their studies for imaging second opinions to http://conciergeradiologist.Com. Check out the site for more info. ...Read more
I had orif for galeazzi fracture on oct12 and pop for 2 weeks.Now having dislocated druj non union of ulnar styloid, no pain now.What i need to do now?
Need to see your --: Surgeon, and have him reevaluate you. Nonunion is not diagnosed after 7-8 weeks. It probably is a delayed union. So he might need to keep you in a cast till it heals. Its too early to label it as nonunion. You might need a bone stimulator for about 8-12 weeks, to promote healing. Resurgical fixation might be helpful. If not getting anywhere then you might consider a 2nd opinion. Good luck. ...Read more
No the ulnar styloid: Is not directly connected there but if the hand is very swollen froma fracture and the trigger finger was waiting for a reason to become more symptomatioc then the swelling in the hadn could be the tipping point. But a direct cause...Unlikley. Causlality is a tricky issue as we often attribute one problem to another temporally, but you might as well blame a trigger finger on a thunderstorm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Overworked sushi chef here, had an ulnar styloid fracture a year ago but I've lost range of movement and aches are constant what's my risk of injury?
TFCC injury: You may have sustained an injury to the triagular fibrocartilage complex (tfcc) when you sustained the ulna fracture. Tfcc injuries can be managed with ice, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, cortisone injection, wrist splint, or surgery. Often a combination of these modalities is beneficial. ...Read more
What should be done about a non healed distal radial fracture? I broke my wrist in nov and had an external fixator. It was removed jan 4. Recent X-ray report says non healed distal radial fracture and avulsed ulnar styloid. What should my course of act
A : A lot of this is based on age. With increasing age, bones heal a bit slower. However, the distal radius is not an area where we usually see problems with healing. It's been about 3 months, which is a bit slow for this area. There are a few things that slow it down: smoking! (or any nicotine)--this is the single biggest factor in poor bone healing. If you use any form of nicotine, stop now! non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, advil, aleve, etc.)--these are second to nicotine in slowing bone healing. Avoid these as much as possible. If you take Aspirin for a heart condition, though, you should continue it. Motion--if the fracture does not have enough holding it in place, the healing tissue will be continually disrupted and you'll get soft healing, rather than bone. A cast or other means of immobilization can be helpful. Poor circulation--if there is a lot of soft tissue injury around the bone, the bone may not get a good blood supply to promote healing. There are electrical bone stimulators that help improve the "biology" of the area. Infection--with an external fixator (or any surgery), there is an increased chance of introducing bacteria to the area of the fracture. Antibiotics may suppress the infection until the bone heals or it may require additional surgery. In the longer term, if the bone fails to heal, internal stabilization and bone grafting may be a possibility, but this area usually heals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Eagle's styloid: Incidence of styloid process elongation is fairly common & not necessary pathologic. The styloid process elongates as humans age. Altered function of attached muscles & ligaments plays a likely role, which ties into bruxism, implicated in temporal styloid elongation. It can cause eagle's syndrome, a form of orocranial pain due to glossopharyngeal nerve compression (cn ix) by the elongated styloid. ...Read more
