PURPOSE Although arthroscopy offers an unparalleled view of intra-articular pathology, its use in the treatment of intra-articular distal radius fractures remains controversial. This study was designed to compare functional and radiologic outcomes of arthroscopically assisted (AA) versus fluoroscopically assisted (FA) reduction and external fixation of distal radius fractures. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective, case-matched comparison of 2 different procedures. METHODS Between January 1995 and… CONTINUE READING
