201 patients with dorsally displaced distal radial fractures were included in this trial to compare the outcomes of three different surgical fixation methods. Patients were randomized to closed reduction and percutaneous pinning (CRPP), non-spanning external fixation (NSEF), or open reduction and internal fixation with a volar locking plate (ORIF). Functional outcomes were measured over a 1 year f...
