Spanish term or phrase: desviación dorsal
Hi everyone,

I came across this term in an A&E report for someone who fell and fractured their wrist. It was in the "exploraciones complementarias" section:

"Rx de muñeca fractura impactada desviación dorsal de tercio distal del radio"

I've translated it as "dorsal deviation" but I'm wondering if there is a more appropriate way to phrase it in this context.

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

The report was issued in Spain and the target audience is in the UK.
