Abstract: 
A break in the distal radius is among the most common types of bone fractures. These fractures manifest themselves at the wrist, which is where the radius bone comes to an end. However, there has been no consensus reached regarding the proper manner in which these injuries should be defined, treated, or evaluated (1). An effective method to restore articular congruity following a distal radius fracture was to use a volar approach, indirect reduction, and locked plate fixation.
Methods: An extensive search of all materials related to the topic was carried out in the PubMed and Google Scholar search engines. Relevant research articles focusing on “Management Of Extra -Articular Distal Radius Fracture Treated With Plaster And Percutaneous Pinning” published in the period 1999–2019 were included in the review. A total of 11 studies similar to the current study objectives were included in the study and analyzed.
Conclusion: As reviewed the literature, Patient has better outcome in range of motion and less stiffness in percutaneous pinning compared to plaster immobilization group. Functional outcome and radiological outcome is better in percutaneous pinning compared to plaster immobilization.
