Abstract

Distal radial fractures are one of the most common fractures in the world. Indirect reduction using external fixation is a commonly used treatment option for these fractures. ligamentotaxosis is utilised to realign and heal fractures. Uneven distraction forces can lead to radial/ulnar deviation and radial shortening. A common after-effect of this is wrist stiffness. Novel therapeutic options harnessing a modified method to achieve an even distraction forces across the wrist can lead to improved outcomes for these patients.
