Case contributed by Dr Maulik S Patel


Trauma to wrist

There are three separate findings:

  • transverse fracture of the distal radius with additional longitudinal component extending to the articular surface
  • lunotriquetral coalition
  • negative ulnar variance

Case Discussion

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