Danish term or phrase: vendende lige distalt
A patient with a wrist fracture. The X-ray results say:
"uændr. stilling svarende til Collesfrakturen med radiusledfladen vendende lige distalt"
which I have as:
"corresponding to the Colles fracture with the radial articular surface... "
and I'm not sure about the phrase after 'radial articular surface.

Could anyone suggest how this would be said in English please?

Many thanks

turning distally
Explanation:
or turning directly distally

'Distal' is away from the point of origin, which seems likely in with a fracture caused, e.g. by a fall ont the wrist.
