About

The purpose of this study is to compare the radiographic and clinical outcomes after short versus conventional plaster cast fixation time in reduced distal radius fractures.

Full description

Displaced distal radius fractures treated with closed reduction and plaster cast fixation are radiographed 10 days (range 8-13 days) after reduction and randomized to one of two study arms; immediate removal of plaster cast or continued fixation in plaster cast for another 3 weeks. Radiographic and Clinical outcome measurements at 1, 4 and 12 months
