There is delayed union of fragments after Smith type I fracture, with almost no callus formation and volar angulation of fragments.
There is also a ulnar styloid process avulsion (looks old, though this injury is often conjoined with Smith fracture).
A delayed union of the fracture fragments due to an inadequate reduction and immobilization.
The patient is on the physical treatment without a possibility for complete protocol and is developing Dupuytren's contracture.
Sent to the orthopedic surgeon for the evaluation and further treatment.
