Volar Locked Plating Versus Bridging External Fixation
A randomized, prospective comparison of volar locked plating versus Hoffman II bridging external fixation supplemented by K-wire fixation in patients with comminuted distal radius fractures, AO/OTA type C2 & C3.
There is no significant difference in using volar plates compared to Hoffman II bridging external fixation supplemented by K-wire fixation in patients with comminuted distal radius fractures, AO/OTA type C2 & C3 as evaluated by a Quick-DASH score at 24 months follow-up.
