Luke P. Robinson, MD, Rashad H. Usmani, MD, Victor Fehrenbacher, MD, Lauren Protzer, MD Journal of Wrist Surgery, March 24 2021 Background: Extra-articular fractures of the distal radius are often treated with a trial of nonoperative management if radiographic parameters are within an acceptable range, especially in the elderly population.

Wang, W.L., and Tosti, R. (2018) Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, 22 (3), 116-119. Abstract: We describe a novel technique in correcting distal radius fractures deformed with significant shortening or coronal plane translation in both the acute or chronic setting. The technique involves using a modified push-pull device to
