Laceration of the ulnar nerve with a closed fracture of the distal radius and ulna: a case report



Laceration of the ulnar nerve with a closed fracture of the distal radius and ulna: a case report



Orthopedics 6(6): 729-731



Injury to the ulnar nerve with closed fractures at the wrist are rare. A case of an ulnar nerve laceration as a result of a closed Colles' fracture is presented. Rationale for early exploration of the ulnar nerve due to persistent palsy following fracture reduction is discussed.
