- See: Radial Radial Inclination
- radial-ulnar translation of hand on forearm is may be used in realigning distal radial fragment on the radial shaft;
- w/ ulnar translation, the 1st and 2nd extensor compartment tendons and their associatted retinaculum create a radial soft tissue hinge;
- this allows Ligamentotaxis w/ ulnar translation to restore the ulnar tilt
