Anatomic restoration of the joint surface and extraarticular alignment is the goal in management of displaced distal radial fractures. Arthroscopy provides well lit, magnified conditions in which to reconstruct the fractured joint surface and to detect and manage intracarpal soft tissue injures associated with distal radial fractures. Percutaneous and limited open reduction techniques combined with wrist arthroscopy in the arthroscopically assisted management of displaced distal radial fractures is described.
