Abstract

Fracture of the distal radius is one of the most common fractures encountered in the emergency room. Although selection of a proper treatment modality is important for successful management of this fracture, early detection, prevention, and adequate treatment for its complications is also important. Complications associated with fracture of the distal radius can occur at any time during the treatment process and the prevalence rate is up to 27% of all distal radius fractures. This article provides a review of possible complications associated with distal radius fracture, along with a discussion of prevention and appropriate treatment methods.
