Surgical treatment of isolated acute dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint without fracture: Case reports of dorsal and volar dislocations

Erdinc Acar.

Abstract
Distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) dislocation without fracture is uncommon. Herein, we present three cases that were treated surgically and followed for a mean of 24 months. Symptoms of DRUJ dislocation without fracture may vary, so clinical suspicion for this injury should increase whenever there is a history of wrist trauma and evidence of restricted or painful forearm supination or pronation. Radiographic evaluation may be more accurate than physical examination for diagnosis. Surgical therapy with arthroscopy-assisted closed reduction and percutaneous Kirschner wire placement yields favorable clinical and functional results.

Key words: Dislocation, distal radioulnar joint, Kirschner wire, radiographic imaging, reduction, treatment
