Abstract

Extra-articular distal radius fractures frequently are undertreated. Results correlate directly with restoration of anatomy. Immobilization in plaster is an inferior method of preserving radial length and palmar tilt. Failure to maintain reduction with plaster can be predicted by the initial injury, if reduction is lost, closed reduction of the redisplaced fracture should be accompanied by external fixation.
