12+ Galeazzi Fracture Mechanism Of Injury Background. Underdiagnosis is common because disruption of. Galeazzi fracture is fracture of the radial shaft which is associated with dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint (druj).
Caused by foosh with flexed elbow or direct blow. Floating elbow injuries of the arm traditionally represent a combination of humeral shaft and forearm fractures which require anatomic rigid open reduction and internal fixation of all fractures to the combination of ipsilateral humeral shaft and galeazzi fractures resulted in a rare floating elbow variant. · galeazzi and monteggia fractures are both fractures in which there is a fracture with shortening of one of the two bones of the forearm with dislocation of the other bone.
Diagnosis is established on radiographic evaluation.
Direct blows on the dorsolateral side are also known mechanism of galeazzi fracture injury. First described by astley cooper, the fracture was named after galeazzi. It is commonly the distal pole of the scaphoid that is involved. In adults, nonsurgical treatment of the injury results in persistent or recurrent dislocations of the distal galeazzi fractures in skeletally immature patients (children and early adolescents) are typically treated with closed reduction and casting because of the.
