Abstract

We compared two different treatments for displaced distal radius Colles' type fractures (Older type 3 and 4), at two hospitals. We found bridging external fixation superior to reduction and fixation in a dorsal plaster cast regarding both the end-anatomic results at 3 months and the functional scores at 3 and 9 months (modified Gartland and Werley).
