Resumo

MAQUNGO, S  e  NKOMO, W. A unique case of a radius shaft fracture with proximal radio-ulnar joint dislocation. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.4, pp.30-31. ISSN 2309-8309.

We present a previously undescribed lesion of a fractured proximal radius associated with a proximal radio-ulnar joint dislocation. Compression plating was performed via the Thompson approach and closed reduction of the proximal radio-ulnar joint (PRUJ) was attained. At one-year follow-up he had united fully and regained full use of his arm. Clinicians need to be aware of this possible variation when confronted with proximal radius fracture.

Palavras-chave : Galeazzi fracture; proximal radio-ulnar joint dislocation; Monteggia fracture.
