- We documented longitudinal changes in the incidence of ulnar-sided wrist pain after distal radial fractures treated by plate fixation and identified factors associated with ulnar-sided wrist pain. A total of 140 patients were enrolled in this study. Radiographs were taken 3months after operation, and were used to measure radial inclination, anterior angulation and ulnar variance, and to identify the presence of an ulnar styloid fracture. Clinical assessments at the same time included grip strengths, ranges of wrist motion and the patient-rated wrist evaluation questionnaire. The presence of ulnar-sided wrist pain was noted at each follow-up visit. The incidence of ulnar-sided wrist pain decreased significantly with time after surgery (22 patients at 3months, 11 patients at 6months and three patients at 12months). The mean age, sex, the presence of an ulnar styloid fracture and the classification of the distal radial fracture were not factors that were associated with a higher incidence of ulnar-sided wrist pain, but there was an association between higher patient-rated wrist evaluation scores and the presence of ulnar-sided wrist pain. Level of evidence: Prognosis, Level IV
