VANCOUVER, British Columbia — At 1-year follow-up, functional outcomes were not different in adults with dorsally displaced distal radius fractures treated with either open reduction and internal fixation with volar locking plates, non-spanning external fixation or closed reduction and percutaneous fixation, according to results presented here.

“There are no statistically significant differences in complication rates, except for the [complex regional pain syndrome] CRPS in the non-spanning external fixation group,” Gregory K. Berry, MD, said during his presentation at the Orthopaedic Trauma Association Annual Meeting.
