Study of occurence of fracture of distal radius in Indian adult population

Abstract: Fractures involving the distal end of radius are one of the frequently encountered injuries in orthopaedics. Conventionally the fractures were treated with closed reduction and immobilization with casts. Even though union of these fractures occurs, it has very high incidence of going in for malunion and joint disability and instability especially those with comminution & intra articular extension. Moreover there is a changing trend in the age group, seen more commonly in the younger age group as a result of Road traffic accidents & trauma, leading to complicated fractures especially with intra articular extension & comminution. Over past few years, the importance of alignment correction, preservation of normal radial length and reconstruction of congruity of Radiocarpal and radioulnar joints has been emphasized.
