While most fractures of the distal radius can be treated successfully by conservative means, some fractures—especially the more complicated fracture types—require surgical fixation. One of the operative techniques is plate osteosynthesis, which can be performed in either a dorsal or a palmar plate position. This study reports on 122 fractures of the distal radius treated by open reduction and internal fixation with the T-plate, investigating the long-term outcome after an average period of 42.4… CONTINUE READING
