The comminuted intraarticular fracture of the distal radius requires early, accurate reduction of the articular surfaces and sustained restoration of an atomic position. The most commonly employed methods are pins and plaster, exernal fixation, percutaneous pinning, and open reduction and internal fixation. There are pitfalls, advantages, and disadvantages inherent in each method. Careful preoperative analysis of individual patients and fractures determines the therapeutic options.
