Posterior Interosseous and Ulnar Nerve Motor Palsies After a Minimally Displaced Radial Neck Fracture
The Journal of Hand Surgery, 07/27/2012
Stepanovich MT et al. – A rare case of acute posterior interosseous nerve and ulnar nerve palsy following a minimally displaced radial neck fracture is reported. With nonsurgical management, both nerves demonstrated excellent functional recovery. Although rare, nerve palsies can occur during a variety of upper extremity clinical situations, including minimally displaced fractures, and the importance of a detailed neurologic examination cannot be overstated.
