Mr. Rodriguez was able to make an appointment with the orthopedist within a few hours of being seen
in the ED for a splint to his left wrist after a fall. The orthopedist reviewed the x-rays from the ...

fiberglass cast was applied, and the fracture was expected to heal in 6–8 weeks. Report the closed
treatment of this fracture.
