Caption

An illustration of a Colles' fracture, a break which occurs at the distal radius of the forearm resulting in a dorsal (posterior) displacement of the wrist. This fracture is most commonly caused by people outstretching their arms to brace themselves during a fall. The posterior displacement of the bones creates a characteristic dinner fork or bayonet deformity of the forearm.
