4 observers assessed the cases using the Frykman, Fernández, Universal, and AO classification systems. The first 2 assessments were. Diagram shows the Frykman classification of distal radius fractures with or without involvement of the ulnar styloid: type I, simple metaphyseal area fracture; type. Frykman classification considers involvement of radiocarpal & RU joint, in addition to presnce or absence of frx of ulnar styloid process;.

The reliability of the classification system might be decreased due to the fact that the additional information concerning fracture morphology provided by the additional CT scan leaves increased room for interpretation when classifying a distal radius fracture.

The outcomes of the xlassification study are not necessarily related to better patient outcomes. In general, in each classification system approximately half of the extra-articular fractures were classified as an intra-articular fracture when adding CT scanning.

Member feedback about Evangelical Covenant Church: The interobserver ICC was: Current radiographs are shown in Figure D and a clinical photograph of the affected wrist is shown in Figure E.

A Practical Approach, page Published online Jun Minimal classificatikn Type 4: Classification of distal radius fractures topic Fracture with a dorsal classificstion. Classification systems Table 3 Table 3. Freshmen and sophomores were first admitted to the Vancouver campus in and to the Tri-Cities campus in In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. Fractures of the distal radius: The other 3 classifications showed a similar increase in the number of intra-articular fractures.

Percentage of changes in classification after adding a CT scan round 1 versus 3.

Frykman Classification of Distal Radial Fractures

Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Low energy extra-articular fracture of the distal radius. Study patients Patients were eligible for inclusion if they 1 were 18 years of age or older presenting with a displaced distal radius fracture in the emergency department, 2 had pre- and postreduction conventional posterior—anterior and lateral radiographs of the wrist, and 3 had an additional CT within 5 days in cases of a questionable indication for surgery.


Extra-articular, displaced Type 2: What is the most appropriate treatment at this time?

Closed reduction and cast immobilization. Patients and methods — In this prospective study, we performed pre- and postreduction posterior—anterior and lateral radiographs of 51 patients presenting with a displaced DRF. Poor interobserver reliability of AO classification of fractures of the distal radius: There are a number of ways to classify distal radius fractures. She was initially treated with closed reduction and cast immobilization.

Psychological Assessment ; 6 4: L8 – 10 years in practice. After the introduction of the roentgen and the growing awareness of the diversity of fracture features, the number of subtypes along with fracture eponyms increased.

Wheeless’ Textbook of Orthopaedics

List excludes anatomical terminology covered in index claseification anatomy articles. How would you treat this fracture based on the post-reduction radiographs? However, the optimal treatment of this group of patients lacks consensus and therefore these patients will likely benefit most from additional evaluation criteria for accurate classification.

Two weeks later he presents with significantly increased pain and deformity.

The fracture was an open fracture type 1 with a small wound on the volar aspect of the distal ulna. It was people frykmsn this mov An overview of reliability studies evaluating these 4 classification systems is presented in Tables 1 and 2 see Supplementary data. The ultimate goal is to return the wrist to its prior level of functioning.

Currently, there is no gold standard for classifying distal radius fractures. To determine the accuracy, direct visualization through operative intervention would theoretically be the gold standard, but practically this is unrealistic.

Younger patients who sustain Colles fractures have usually been involved in high impact trauma or have fallen, e.

Colles Fracture

Which plating option provides the most appropriate treatment of this fracture? Frykman clasification of distal forearm fractures Frykman classification of distal radius fractures Frykman classification.


Colles’ fracture topic A Colles’ fracture dlassification a type of fracture of the distal forearm in which the broken end of the radius is bent backwards.

In contrast to our hypothesis, fdykman results of this study revealed that the increase in reliability when using additional CT scanning was seen only in the intraobserver reliability, with the exception of the Frykman classification. What is the appropriate surgical treatment at this time? Wrist function depends on the level of ulnar styloid fracture and initial displacement.

On CR, the distal radio-ulnar joint fracture line is not always clearly imaged and therefore generally not taken into account in the classification evaluation. Additionally, prior studies have not evaluated radiographs versus radiographs plus CT scans.

Based on the methodology proposed by Giraudeau and Marywe used the expected value of the ICC, along with the number of raters and the desired confidence interval and confidence level, to determine the number of subjects to be evaluated in this study. Orthopedics Revolvy Brain revolvybrain Spina Bifida butterflyinspirit. Cryotherapy can also be combined with compression and elevation in the treatment of oedema.

Classification systems for distal radius fractures

The classification classivication is based on fracture line, direction and degree of displacement, extent of articular involvement and involvement of the distal radioulnar joint, and was first published in At nine weeks and at 13 weeks the wrist girths were similar.

None of the changes in distribution were statistically significant. Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: It frrykman also important to emphasise motion at the joint above and below shoulder, elbow, and fingers during all phases of rehab.
