These simple partial articular fractures involve the radial (lateral) column of the distal radius. These fractures demand accurate reduction since they involve the articular surface.
These are classified by AO/OTA as 2R3B1.1.
This fracture pattern is associated with a high incidence of injury to the scapholunate interosseous ligament (SLIL). They are shearing fractures of the joint surface.
