The clinical importance of carpal instabilities following distal radial fractures.
A prospective study was undertaken to determine the clinical importance of the different carpal instabilities following dorsally displaced distal radial fractures (Colles'type).
All patients were followed for 1 year and a Cooney score and X-ray evaluation were done.
Nine different carpal instabilities were evaluated.
Only dissociative DISI and ulnar translocation showed significant clinical differences at 1 year follow-up.
It is therefore recommended that a dissociative DISI, usually caused by scapholunate dissociation, should be treated by percutaneous pinning at the time of the initial treatment.
