A clinical examination to identify possible instability before reduction has no consequences. Representing a special case df forearm fractures, it is classified as a fracture of the radius at any level associated with disruption of the distal radioulnar joint DRUJ and resulting luxation of the ulna [ 19 ]. Reckling, MD ; Larry D. The results were excellent galeazzk 23 cases and good in three cases. Standard treatment in adults consists of operative intervention with plate fixation and in some cases temporary transfixation of the DRUJ using Kirschner wires [ 259 ].


Received Dec 6; Accepted Apr 9. The only published report focusing on Galeazzi fractures in children shows the outcome in children treated with a below-elbow cast is worse compared with the group treated gwleazzi above-elbow casting [ 19 ]. Please review our privacy policy.

Radiographs in two planes, including the elbow and wrist, were performed in all cases. About three months after initial surgery he was operated for implant removal and antibiotic impregnated cement was inserted. Galeazzi fractures and dislocations. Lisfranc Jones March Lewion. Proper reduction of the radius with subsequent reduction of the ulna in the DRUJ and cast immobilization provide good to excellent outcomes even if the Galeazzi lesion is primarily underdiagnosed.

These two patients had fractures of both bones of the forearm with the fracture located at the junction of the middle to the distal thirds of the forearm. However, it was first described inby Cooper, 92 years before Galeazzi reported his results.

Therefore, the main objective of lesio retrospective study was to analyze the incidence of Galeazzi fractures in children with a dislocated fracture of the forearm and to report the percentage of misdiagnosed Galeazzi fractures in this group of patients.

This rupture was caused by a prominent and sharp nail end close to the tendon.

[Galeazzi lesion in children and adults: the undiagnosed lesion].

HPI – Patient sustained galeazzi fracture right radius 8months back. Incomplete fractures, bowing fractures, and intact periosteal structures provide residual stability after bone trauma.


When the opposite occurs that is, the radius breaks and shortensthe distal radio-ulnar joint dislocates, resulting in the Galeazzi or “reverse Monteggia” fracture. However, the surgeon is unable to reduce the distal radioulnar joint.

Scaphoid Rolando Bennett’s Boxer’s Busch’s. The loss of reduction in the DRUJ was treated effectively with plate osteosynthesis. Three months back he was again operated for nonunion. In addition, the increased elasticity of the ligamental structures in children may compensate for displacement of the ulna and gaaleazzi ligamental rupture in children with Galeazzi injuries [ 1 ].

Thank you for rating! Pain and soft-tissue swelling are present at the distal-third radial fracture site and at the wrist joint. Reduction of these fracture-dislocations must be accurate and must be maintained until healing is complete, or there will be encroachment on the interosseous membranes.
