Residual Radial Translation of Distal Radius Fractures—Defining a New Radiographic Parameter and Occult Cause of DRUJ Instability

Level 2 Evidence
      Commonly used radiographic parameters that assess distal radius fracture reduction, do not take into account radial translation of the distal fragment, a cause of distal radioulnar joint instability.1 We hypothesized that having a normal radiographic parameter for residual radial translation will equip surgeons with a reliable and reproducible tool that can identify and evaluate the extent of this problem and direct appropriate surgical management.
