Abstract

Distal Radius fractures (DRF) are one of the most common injuries in the upper extremity and incidence is expected to rise due to a growing elderly population. The complex decision to treat patients operatively or conservatively depends on a large variety of parameters which have to be considered. No unanimous consensus has been reached yet, which operative approach and fixation technique would produce the best postoperative functional results with lowest complication rates. This article addresses the available evidence for indications, approaches, reduction, and fixation techniques in treating DRF.
