Wrist Fracture Treatment


A fracture is a partial or complete break in the bone. There are many different types of fractures. Bone fractures are often caused by falls, trauma, or as a result of a direct blow or kick to the body. Overuse or repetitive motions can cause stress fractures.

Reasons for Fractures


  • Displaced fracture: The bone fragments have significantly shifted out of their normal alignment.
  • Open fracture: The bone breaks through the skin, increasing infection risk.
  • Unstable fracture:The fracture fragments are likely to move, preventing proper healing.
  • Fractures involving the joint surface:These require accurate alignment to restore joint function.
  • Failure of conservative treatment:¬†When casting or splinting fails to achieve proper healing or reduce pain.

Conditions Treated

Distal radius fractures

The most common type, involves the radius bone near the wrist joint.

Scaphoid fractures

Fractures of the scaphoid bone, crucial for wrist stability.

Fractures of the lunate bone, requiring careful alignment for proper function.

Triquetral fractures

Types of Wrist Fracture Fixation

Percutaneous pinning

Using pins inserted through the skin to hold the bone fragments in place.

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF)

A surgical procedure involving an incision to directly visualize and align the bone fragments, followed by fixation with screws, plates, or wires.

External fixation

A metal frame outside the wrist stabilizes the fracture with pins inserted into the bone.
