Abstract

This case report outlines the management of a Chauffeur fracture (radial styloid process fracture) in a 28-year-old male following a road traffic accident. The patient presented with typical symptoms of pain, swelling, and reduced motion at the wrist. Diagnosis was confirmed via radiographs and CT scan, which showed a displaced radial styloid fracture. Surgical intervention through open reduction and internal fixation was pursued due to the displacement. Post-surgical outcomes were favourable with the patient regaining full wrist function after comprehensive rehabilitation. This report emphasizes the necessity for prompt and precise treatment protocols in managing Chauffeur’s fractures to ensure optimal recovery and function. The insights from this case contribute to the broader understanding of wrist fractures resulting from high-energy trauma and underscore the significance of a multidisciplinary approach in trauma Orthopedics.
