A study in the November 5th issue of the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS) found that men were three times less likely than women to undergo bone mass density (BMD) testing following a broken wrist (distal radius fracture) and seven times less likely Gunfire has broken out five times in four days in North Charleston – three of which were within a mile radius of each other in an already troubled area. Sunday night, an 11-year-old boy was hit in the leg when he went outside to scrape off his dinner plate In the times of Hippocrates and Galen, distal radius fractures (DRFs) were thought to be wrist dislocations. Pouteau first varied from this tradition when he described a variety of forearm fractures in the French literature, including a DRF. As a result “The results of this study lead us to suggest that men over the age of 50 with fractures of the distal radius should undergo bone density testing and evaluation with the FRAX algorithm to better identify those at high risk for future fracture and those who Researchers found women older than 50 years with distal radius fractures has physical performance similar to an age-matched control group without distal radius fractures. “Overall physical performance is not different between women with a distal radius The point at which these bones come into contact with the carpal bones in the hand is the wrist joint. In a distal radius fracture, the end of the radius near the wrist suddenly breaks. The culprit is some type of heavy force exerted upon the bone .
While on a cycling trip in the mountains of Ranikot Fort I sustained a right distal radius fracture (a fracture of the forearm) from a fall. This injury eventually progressed from when I could not even look at the wound, which reminded me of a cut-up Brudvik C, Hove LM: Childhood fractures in Bergen, Norway: identifying high-risk groups and activities.
