Comparison of Two Methods for Treatment of Colles´s Fracture
The purpose of this study is to compare two different fixationmethods for fractures of the wrist(distal radius fractures). We are comparing an external fixation (Hoffmann-II-non-bridging) vs. an internal fixation(Micronail). Primary endpoint is patient satisfaction as scored by the DASH-questionnaire.Secondary followup is X-rays, strength, PRWE-questionnaire.
