abstract
The aim of this study was to assess the radiological results of Colles' fractures treated with Kapandji wiring and to determine the frequency of postoperative anterior fracture displacement. The X-rays of 89 fractures in women over 59 years of age were evaluated. Five weeks after injury, palmar shift of the distal fracture fragments and/or palmar tilt of more than 20 were observed in 26 patients. In ten wrists dorsal tilt was not sufficiently corrected and measured more than 10. Increase in ulnar variance was more than 2 mm in 37 wrists and more than 5 mm in six wrists; this was more pronounced when the palmar tilt was not corrected properly or when anterior fracture displacement was present. We conclude that Kapandji wiring may not be able to prevent anterior fracture displacement in almost one-third of Colles' fractures in osteoporotic elderly patients.
