LóPEZ CUELLAR, Rafael; TRUFFIN RODRIGUEZ, Yaniel  y  PEREZ ALVAREZ, Yudit. Distal Radius Fracture Treated by Internal Fixation with Plates, Screws and the RALCA® External Mini-fixator. Medisur [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.1, pp. 58-63. ISSN 1727-897X.

Distal radius fractures are very common in medical practice. In our service, we may not have the most widely used devices for fixation of these fractures at a given moment. For this reason, we must consider all possible combinations within our power to correct them since most of the time, it is impossible to maintain a fracture reduction using a single technique. We present the case of a 24-year-old female patient treated at the Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima University General Hospital in Cienfuegos due to a displaced fracture of the left distal radius caused by impaction. It was successfully stabilized by internal fixation with plates, screws and the RALCA® external mini-fixator.

Palabras clave : radius fractures; hand injuries; fracture fixation, internal; internal fixators; bone plates; bone nails.
