Image Based MCQ on Fracture

Hello awesomites!
Yesterday we posted an Image based MCQ on Fracture of forearm bones and here's the answer for it.
Q. The X-ray of forearm in AP and Lateral views as shown in the image is diagnostic of

A. Galeazzi fracture-dislocation
B. Barton fracture
C. Monteggia fracture-dislocation
D. Colles fracture
Ans: c) Monteggia fracture-dislocation
Monteggia fracture-dislocations is defined as fracture of the ulnar shaft along with concomitant dislocation of the radial head.
Mechanism: Monteggia fracture-dislocations occur as the result of a fall onto an outstretched hand (FOOSH).
Classification: The Bado classification is used to subdivide the Fracture dislocation into four types.
Type I: anterior dislocation of radial head (Most common)
Type II: posterior dislocation of radial head
Type III: lateral dislocation of radial head
Type IV: anterior radial head dislocation as well as proximal third ulnar and radial shaft fractures
That's all!
Thanks for your active participation.
