F ractures of the distal end of the radius should be treated on the same principles as other fractures involving joints. Displaced articular fractures require open reduction to allow anatomical reconstruction of both the radiocarpal and the radio-ulnar joints. For extra-articular fractures with severe comminution and shortening this enables the radial length to be re-established achieving radio-ulnar congruency. Stable internal fixation can be achieved with two 2.0 AO titanium plates placed ondoi:10.1302/0301-620x.78b4.0780588 fatcat:czqowjpdmrc25c3656hum4odni
