Selected Research

Reconstruction of a chronic Monteggia fracture with associated radio-ulnar synostosis

Orthopaedic injuries can be missed or ignored when patients have multiple traumatic injuries. Such orthopaedic injuries can be more difficult to manage at a later date. In this work, published in the American Journal of Orthopedics, Dr. Stein and Dr. Anand M. Murthi, also of MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, report the case of a patient whose Monteggia fracture was ignored while his head injury was addressed.
