Complex fractures of the distal radius are articular lesions and comminuted at the level of the epiphysis and metaphysis. Their treatment is difficult and in most cases surgical.

Abstract

Complex fractures of the distal radius are articular lesions and comminuted at the level of the epiphysis and metaphysis. Their treatment is difficult and in most cases surgical. Of all the different osteosynthesis methods available, internal fixation with plate and screws is the most commonly used. In particular, angular stability plates are superior in terms of rigidity and stability to conventional volar and dorsal plates. DVR plate has these mechanical characteristics, and its low profile has reduced frictions with surrounding soft tissues. For these reasons, this device implanted through a single volar approach, can stabilize the majority of volarly and dorsally displaced unstable distal radius fractures. In this study, 48 patients, affected by complex fractures of the distal radius treated with DVR volar plates, were assessed by the Mayo modified wrist score, the Italian version of the disability of the arm, shoulder and hand. The satisfactory results observed confirm the efficacy of this device.
