Author(s): Dr. Rajendra Goyal and Dr. Rahul Singh
Abstract: There are increasing reports of distal radius fractures suggesting that they are frequently articular injuries resulting in disruption of both radio carpal and radio ulnar joints and profoundly affecting the wrist of greater population. Preliminary information about age, sex, dominant hand, mechanism of injury, date of reporting to hospital, cause of delay and treatment received so far was noted and screening for associated injury after receiving of patient in emergency and vital parameters were checked. Out of 32 patients of Conservative group, 17(53.00%) were males and 15(47.000%) were females, while a total of 18 patients of operative (VLCP) group, 13 (72.00%) were males and 5(28.00%) were females. In Conservative group, majority was observed that in Operative group of patient i.e.16 (89.00%) and 22(68.76%) were lying in the age group < 50 years respectively.
