The Impact of Coronal Alignment on Distal Radioulnar Stability Following Distal Radius Fracture

Not a clinical study
      It has been theorized that malalignment of the distal radial fragment in the coronal plane may compromise radioulnar stability afforded by the distal oblique bundle of the interosseous membrane (IOM).2 We hypothesized that anatomic reduction of coronal alignment of a distal radius fracture will decrease distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) displacement, particularly in specimens with a distinct distal oblique bundle of the IOM.
