54 year old female after falling down on the ground. Heavy pain of wrist with problems of moving, but without edema. What is the diagnosis? and management?




Distal Radius Fractures (Broken Wrist). The radius is the larger of the two bones of the forearm. The end toward the wrist is called the distal end. A fracture of the distal radius occurs when the area of the radius near the wrist breaks. Broken bone is in a good position, a plaster cast may be applied until the bone heals.

Hairline# distal radius. POP slab with support. Antiinflammatory and analgesics orally. Multivitamins and antioxidants orally. Reassurance and check x -ray after 2 weeks.

Thanks Dr Pushkar Bhomia
