Abstract

Fracture of the shaft of the radius associated with a dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint is an uncommon injury. In 1934, Riccardo Galeazzi of Milan reported his experience with the management of 18 such cases before the Lombard Surgical Society and subsequently received the eponym for this injury. Galeazzi was one of Italy's pioneering orthopedic surgeons, with an extensive bibliography that included nearly 150 publications. This article examines the evolution of management of the Galeazzi fracture and sheds light on this notable physician's life.
