(4) Similar to ulnar styloid fractures, fractures of the distal ulnar metaphysis can complicate the treatment of distal radius fractures, with the potential to cause instability, loss of forearm rotation, and posttraumatic DRUJ arthrosis.
The anteromedial aspect of tibia is subcutaneous which is responsible for tibia being the most commonly fractured long bone.3,4 The importance of soft tissue cover in the outcome of tibial fractures was first classified by Gustilo.3 High energy tibial fractures such as those presenting with articular depression, condylar displacement, dissociation of metaphysis from diaphysis and degloving injuries are very difficult to treat.
