The effect of articular reduction after fractures on posttraumatic degenerative arthritis. A critical analysis review
- View All
-Distal radial fractures with >2 mm of articular incongruity are associated with worse functional outcomes.
-Anatomic reduction of acetabular fractures positively influences functional outcome and reduces the risk of posttraumatic osteoarthritis.
-Mild to moderate joint surface incongruity (=4 mm) following tibial plateau fractures is well tolerated and generally is associated with good functional outcomes.
-Although anatomic reduction of tibial plafond fractures reduces the risk of radiographic arthrosis, it has yet to be proven to improve functional outcome.
