Abstract

Conservative treatment in a plaster cast and internal osteosynthesis, fall for different reasons to solve the problems of complex, comminuted and intra-articular fractures of the distal end of the radius. Hoffmann's external fixation is therefore proposed for this offers a considerable number of advantages: speed of operation, blind reduction, early mobilisation, rapid callus, variability in wrist position, atraumaticity of fixator removal, low cost and tolerance of the apparatus. We present 17 cases treated with this method, and good results.
