Galeazzi fracture – Wikipedia
A Galeazzi-equivalent fracture is a distal radial fracture with a distal ulnar physeal fracture 2. Galeazzi fractures are primarily encountered in children, with a peak incidence at age years 3. Typically, Galeazzi fracture-dislocations occur due to a fall on an outstretched hand FOOSH with the elbow in flexion.
A forearm series is usually sufficient for diagnosis and management planning. However, good quality orthogonal views are needed to identify and characterize displacement correctly.
In addition to stating the presence of the radial fracture and distal radio-ulnar joint dislocation, a number of features should be sought and commented on:. These fractures are unstable and operative fixation is usually required to reduce and fix the radial fracture, with arm galfazzi in pronation The exact mode of fixation depends on the location of the radial fracture Many people consider the Galeazzi and Piedmont fractures as the same injury.
However, some state that the latter is an isolated radial fracture without distal radioulnar dissociation.
