Galeazzi fractures are not uncommon. They frequently result from falls with forced hyperpronation of the forearm. They are potentially unstable because of certain destabilizing factors at the wrist. Early recognition is essential, as is early operative fixation of the radius in adults. This paper reviews the English language literature and current knowledge of Galeazzi fractures in adults.

    Roughly a quarter of all clavicle fractures occur at the lateral end. Displaced fractures of the lateral clavicle have a higher rate of nonunion. The management of fractures of the lateral clavicle remains controversial. Open reduction internal fixation with a superiorly placed locking plate is...

    Introduction We performed a prospective, randomised study to compare the Ex-fi-re external fixator (EF) with locked intramedullary (IM) nailing in tibial fractures. Only fractures without soft-tissue problems of importance were included. Materials and methods Ex-fi-re is a unilateral, dynamic...
