Based on previously published reports on fractures of the distal radius and on the analysis of 400 fresh fractures treated in two accident hospitals affiliated with our university hospital, we propose a new classification as shown in Table 2. This new classification includes a type of combined Chauffeur-Barton fracture which has never been described before. Each type of fracture of the distal radius requires a specific treatment as shown in Fig. 1.
