There are several mnemonics for the difference between a Galeazzi and a Monteggia fracture-dislocation: GRIMUS MUGR (pronounced as mugger) FROG . A Galeazzi fracture is defined as a fracture of the radius associated with dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint. Treatment in children and adolescents is usually.

The result using the Gartland-Werley score was excellent in 23 cases and good in three cases. The DRUJ was stable at followup in all children. Treatment in children and adolescents is usually possible with closed reduction and casting.

Galeazzi fractures are best treated with open reduction of the radius and the distal radio-ulnar joint. Pain and soft-tissue swelling are present at the distal-third radial fracture site and at the wrist joint.

Fracture of the distal radius including sequelae: Case 4 Case 4. Forearm trauma may be associated with compartment syndrome. Perform open reduction and internal fixation of the radius, then assess the distal radioulnar joint for instability, and reconstruct the distal radioulnar joint with a looped palmaris longus autograft if instability persists. Neither a reverse Galeazzi lesion nor a Galeazzi-equivalent lesion with disruption of the distal ulnar epiphysis was found in our group fraaktur patients.

The considerably higher rate of Galeazzi fractures in our series may be attributed to the selection bias we included only patients with significant displacement and inpatient treatment. Galeazzi fractures in children. A An AP view and B lateral view are shown immediately after repositioning and plaster casting of the same patient as in Figure 1.


Our local policy requires inpatient treatment in cases of major dislocated fractures, which require manipulation. On the 69th postoperative day, rupture of the tendon of the extensor pollicis longus muscle occurred after minimal trauma.

In both cases, the lesion was not recognized at admission or during surgery. Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir. Management of the Galeazzi fracture. As a consequence of intramedullary fracture stabilization, the patient had hypoesthesia in the area of the superficial radial nerve over the first extensor compartment.

Duverney fracture Pipkin fracture. The patient required transfer of the tendon of the extensor indicis muscle. In case of irreducibility, manipulation under general anesthesia is required to exclude possible soft tissue impingement. In the remaining two cases, dorsal plate fixation of the radius was required. HPI – Patient sustained fracture about one year back. Open reduction with fixation of the radial fracture using plates and screws, transfixation of the DRUJ, and immobilization with an above-elbow plaster cast led to good functional results and therefore is recommended as the preferred treatment in adult patients [ 101316 ].

Malunion of the radius, subluxation in the radioulnar joint with resulting overgrowth, injury to the ulnar nerve, or limited range of motion for pronation and supination, which represent common complications of Galeazzi fractures [ 16 ], were not found in our study group.

Localization of these fractures and displacement of the ulna were recorded. Galeazzi fractures are sometimes associated with wrist drop due to injury to radial nerveextensor tendons or muscles. A clinical examination to identify possible instability before reduction has no consequences. A Galeazzi-equivalent fracture is a distal radial fracture with a distal ulnar physeal fracture 2.

In adults, this fracture occurs with an incidence of 2. Combined fractures of the forearm: Frsktur – years in practice. In addition, it is accepted that the radius fracture accompanying the Galeazzi lesion is located most often at the junction of the middle and distal thirds of the bone [ 12 ].

Retrieved 6 November This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. However, good quality orthogonal views are needed to identify and characterize displacement correctly. The Galeazzi fracture, which is named after the Italian surgeon Riccardo Galeazzi, was first described by Cooper inaccording to Voigt and Lill [ 18 ].
