This pattern typically occurs in younger patients with higher energy injuries. Die punch—This is an injury where an axial load is transmitted through the lunate onto the distal radius resulting in the ‘punching out’ of a depressed fracture of the articular surface of the distal radius. Closed reduction may be attempted; however, any intraarticular incongruity post-reduction may require CT evaluation and percutaneous pinning. Chauffeur (Hutchinson) fracture—This is an oblique intra-articular fracture of the distal radius involving the base of the radial styloid.
In adults suspect a radio-capitellar fracture or dislocation. 18) is a fracture of the ulna, often at the proximal or mid shaft with disruption of the radiocapitellar joint and dislocation of the radial head at the elbow. The radial head typically dislocates anteriorly. Both of these injuries disrupt (a) • • Positive anterior or posterior fat pads – search for a fracture No visible fracture but both fat pads displaced. In adults – fracture of the radial head. 16 (a),(b) Fracture-dislocation of the capitellum.
This type involves the growth plate and the metaphysis, sparing the epiphysis. Treatment is usually cast immobilisation. 15). 13 Skier’s thumb (gamekeeper). UCL tear with avulsion fracture: (a) AP oblique radiograph demonstrating an avulsed fragment adjacent to the sesamoid bone; (b) coronal STIR MRI of same injury. The MRI shows the tear gap but the osseous fragment is not well seen. Adults/skeletally mature Colles’ fracture—This is the most common fracture of the wrist. This is a transverse fracture of the distal radius with dorsal angulation and displacement of the fracture fragment.
