PURPOSE The aim of this study was to define the outcome after dorsal or volar plating of Association for Osteosynthesis (AO) type C3 distal radius fractures based on the fracture morphology. METHODS Twenty-nine patients with AO type C3 distal radius fractures were surgically managed between 1996 and 2005. Group 1 (n = 15) had volar plating. Group 2 (n = 14) had dorsal plating. Outcomes were evaluated at an average of 22 months after surgery. Statistical analysis was performed using the… CONTINUE READING
