Carpal coalition and distal radius fracture

Case contributed by Dr Maulik S Patel


Trauma to wrist

There are three separate but findings:

  1. Transverse fracture of the distal radius with additional longitudinal component extending to the articular surface. 
  2. Lunate-triquetral coalition (fusion).
  3. Negative ulnar variance.

Case Discussion

Excellent example for satisfaction of search - there are other findings besides the obvious distal radius fracture.
