Vascular disorders of the upper-extremity are uncommon, but ones that may have lasting implications.


Wrist Fractures

The wrist is made up of eight small bones and the two forearm bones, the radius and ulna (see Figure 1). The bones come together to form multiple large and small joints. At each joint, the ends of the bones are lined with a very smooth covering (cartilage).
