Wrist trauma is one of the most common reasons for visits to the Emergency Department. Around 40-50% of patients with wrist trauma present with a distal radius fracture. Although this might appear as a relatively minor injury, immobilisation of the wrist can result in substantial disability, and insufficient treatment may result in lasting impairment of the wrist. The aim of Monique Walenkamp’s research is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of, and prognosis for, patients with wrist injury. This includes determining when radiography is necessary and in which cases surgical intervention is effective.
