Given the results from the present study and the best evidence from the literature, we conclude that there is no scientific evidence powerful enough to allow definitive conclusions concerning the main aspects of managing distal radius fractures. Although fractures of the distal extremity of the radius were first described by Colles intoday there is still no robust scientific evidence to allow a definitive treatment algorithm to be devised.


Unable to process the form.

Fractures of the distal radius (Colles’ fracture)

However, over the last decade, better-quality scientific studies have been published, thus providing some evidence for treating these fractures. The vast majority of Colles fractures can be treated with closed reduction and cast immobilisation. There was a consensus between most of the interviewees regarding the following aspects of treating fractures of the distal radius: There is no evidence favoring one method for closed reduction coles another.

The most frequent complications were impairment of joint mobility and residual pain. Colles’ fracture is one of the most common among older white people. Nonetheless, there was some favorable evidence supporting the use of external fixation and percutaneous pinning.

Plain films usually suffice, although if there is a concern of intra-articular extension, then CT may be beneficial. J Bone Joint Surg Am.

Yes, in all surgical treatments. Case 5 Case 5. Case 6 Case 6. Although the Frykmann classification is very widely used, it does not supply the minimum backing necessary for planning the treatment, 11 since it essentially only supplies morphological data on the fracture and thus is not a recommended method. Frahura such, in clinical practice, the use of the term Colles fracture with an appropriate description of any associated injuries is sufficient in most instances.

Most fractures are therefore dorsally angulated and impacted. They fraura that new studies of good methodological cilles should be conducted in order to supply better evidence for making decisions on the most appropriate treatment.
