  1. Fracture of the distal third of radius and dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint.
  2. Galeazzi fracture is called the “fracture of necessity”.
  3. Like monteggia fracture dislocation, it often goes unrecognized. And a treatment regimen of closed reduction & cast immobilization has a high rate of unsatisfactory results.
  4. Rigid anatomical fixation by plating (DCP/LC DCP) is the treatment of choice in adults.
