The effect of articular reduction after fractures on posttraumatic degenerative arthritis. A critical analysis review Journal Article uri icon
  • -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.
