The management of distal radius fractures has evolved considerably in the last two decades. Techniques and hardware have improved so much that the surgeon can usually assure good results in these debilitating fractures. Yet no one method can be used for all injuries, as the personality of each fracture demands a customized approach. Furthermore, what works in one age group may not work in another. For this reason, every available treatment has its own space in our options. The need for surgeons to be well versed in all techniques is critical. We offer a concise update of important evolutionary and current treatment guidelines for this common fracture.
