The ligaments by virtue of disease and overload from an altered axis will eventually cascade into instability and joint collapse. Fig. 2-10 maps the expected imbalances from the same client with ligamentous instability associated with a classical malunion of a distal radius fracture.

Edema develops when the descending gradient of Starling’s forces are disrupted by an interruption and an imbalance. The cascade of events that occurs after tissue laceration is a good example. Initially, an outflow of water and electrolytes (transudate edema) into the wound occurs. The mast cells then release histamines, which greatly increase capillary permeability, and plasma proteins, phagocytic cells, and other substances leak into the area. 7 Edema results when excess fluid and plasma proteins are trapped in the interstitium.
