Internal fixation versus other surgical methods for treating distal radius fractures in adults

To compare the effects (benefits and harms) of internal fixation versus other methods of surgical intervention (percutaneous pinning; external fixation) for distal radius fractures in adults.

Our main comparisons will be:

  • internal fixation versus method of surgery that is not internal fixation; i.e. percutaneous pinning or external fixation or a combination of these two methods
  • internal fixation versus percutaneous pinning
  • internal fixation versus external fixation

This is a protocol.
