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

Over past few years, the importance of alignment correction, preservation of normal radial length and reconstruction of congruity of Radio carpal and radioulnar joints has been emphasized.
