Distal radius fractures are one of the most common injuries of the upper limb. They commonly occur after a fall on the outstretched hand. The demographics of this condition have changed in the past few decades – with many more occurring after high-energy injuries, resulting in increasingly complex and unstable fractures. These require reduction and stabilization with internal fixation devices.
