[Treatment of intra-articular malunion of the distal radius of young active patients].
Durand A., Camps C., Merle M.
Management of malunion of the distal radius remains difficult. Planning of the correction of the articular displacement requires a comprehensive analysis by CT arthrography to analyze bone, cartilage and ligaments. Arthroscopy is a valuable tool in the context of joint trauma. In the absence of osteoarthritis, the correction can be carried out as early as possible in the weeks or months following the initial fracture. The use of locking plates allows early mobilization after surgery. This correction aims to prevent the development of secondary osteoarthritis.
