Abstract

Background/Purpose: Distal radius fractures are one of the most common injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Functional outcome in these fractures depend on many factors. Our main aim was to study if good radiological outcome has any effect on functional outcome.
Methods: We retrospectively studied 80 patients, of which 53 were males & 27 females. 40 cases were treated with conservative management & 40 cases with surgical management.
Results: Most of the patients were between 20-30 years (Mean 40.35 years). Most commonly the mode of injury, wrist involvement & fracture type were RTA (51.7%), Right side (53.3%) & Frykmans III (41.7%) respectively. Mean pain score & Function score (PRWE) and loss of movements were less among patients where radiological parameters were restored.
Conclusion: From this study, we conclude that restoration of radiological parameters will help in good functional outcome in treatment of intra-articular fractures of distal end of radius.

Key words: Distal radius fractures, Frykmans, intra-articular fractures, Functional outcome, Radiological outcome.
