Colles fracture: does the anatomical result affect the final function?


, : Colles fracture: does the anatomical result affect the final function?. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. British Volume 70(4): 649-651

Thirty patients who had sustained a Colles' fracture at least four years previously were examined functionally and radiographically. Seventeen had a good radiological result and 13 were considered to have malunion. Functionally the displaced group performed significantly worse than the undisplaced group. We conclude that malunion of a Colles' fracture results in a weak, deformed, stiff and probably painful wrist.

Self-splicing group II introns are found in bacteria and in the organellar genes of plants, fungi, and yeast. The mechanism for the first step of splicing is generally believed to involve attack of a specific intronic 2'-hydroxyl group on a p...
