Dislocation may occur at the inferior radio-ulnar, the radio-carpal, mid-carpal, inter-carpal, or carpo-metacarpal joints, but the strong ligaments of these articulations, the comparatively free movement at the various joints, and the relative weakness of the lower end of the radius whereby it is so frequently fractured, render dislocation a rare form of injury.
These include fractures of the lower ends of the bones of the forearm and separation of their epiphyses; sprains and dislocations of the inferior radio-ulnar, and of the radio-carpal articulations; and fractures and dislocations of the carpus.
-- An incision down to the carpal bones, extended from a point two lines to the ulnar side of the extensor secundi internodii pollicis, and from a quarter to half an inch below the radio-carpal articulation, swept in a curvilinear direction downwards, close to the carpal extremities of the metacarpal bones, to a point just below the end of the ulna.
She’s focused this morning on the wrist joint and its radio-carpal wonders.
a considerable proportion of cases it is impacted, and not infrequently the lower fragment is comminuted, the fracture extending into the radio-carpal joint.
