The Wrist

Distal Radius Fractures

The radius is the larger of the two bones of the forearm.  The end toward the wrist is called the distal end.  A fracture of the distal radius occurs when the area of the radius near the wrist breaks.

Distal radius fractures are very common.  In fact, the radius is the most commonly broken bone in the arm.
