Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This study investigated how members of a hand team perceive clinical signs after a fracture of the distal radius. The risk of developing complex regional pain syndrome I (CRPS-I) was assessed on a 100-mm straight line based on clinical signs 5 weeks, 7 weeks and 10 weeks after the accident. Members of the hand team perceived clinical signs significantly differently.
