Abstract

A total of 112 consecutive cases of fractures of the distal radius managed conservatively were graded according to radiological criteria using the first radiograph. These criteria, as well as age over 60 years, were considered as gravity factors. A strong correlation was found between these criteria and the risk of secondary displacement, despite a correct initial reduction.
