"The most common fracture in the arm, and the second most common fracture in the body (second to spine fractures) is an injury of the bone in the distal forearm named the radius. Eponymns for this fracture include a Colles, Smith, and Barton’s fractures; each term describing a different fracture pattern. Usually, a patient falls on the outstretched arm causing displacement of the bone towards the back of the wrist." – Richard A. Bernstein, M. D.
