ABSTRACT
Galleazi type fracture dislocations are sometimes associated with complex dorsal dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint due to interposition of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon. We present the first reported case of complex volar distal radioulnar joint dislocation in a Galleazi variant associated with interposition of the ulnar neurovascular bundle.

    A very rare, Regan and Morrey's type IIIA fracture of the coronoid process of ulna is presented and discussed with a review of the literature. The operative approach to be used is emphasised. Open reduction and internal fixation render the elbow stable, and a good range of motion can be achieved...
