Carpal coalition and distal radius fracture

Case contributed by Dr Maulik S Patel

Presentation

Trauma to wrist

There are three separate 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.
