도수 정복이 불가능하였던 원위 척골의 성장판 골절 -2예 보고-
Injuries to the distal ulnar epiphysis are uncommon. Irreducible epiphyseal plate fracture of the distal ulna is a rare, having been reported in the English literature less than 10 times. We report two cases of irreducible fracture of the distal ulnar epiphysis. First case is Salter-Harris type II fracture of distal radius and ulna. Second case is Galeazzi-equivalent fracture. The distal ulnar epiphysis was irreducible due to interposition of extensor carpi ulnaris tendon and periosteum between the fragments, respectively.
