Abstract: Introduction:The fracture of distal end of radius was before known for being common in old with low functional demand who sustained a low energy trauma. But the rate of this fracture has increased due to more number of old populations along with increasing number of road traffic accidents and other high energy traumas in all age groups who end up suffering this fracture [1]. This joined with ever increasing demand for perfect reduction and a decreased difficulty in treatment of this fracture among the patients has brought greater importance to the way these fractures are managed
Method: This randomized comparative study was performed at Department of Orthopaedics, ERA’S Lucknow Medical College & Hospital, Lucknow for a duration of eighteen months on patients who were admitted after physical examination and X-ray of wrist, radio-logically confirmed extra-articular fractures of distal radius after fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria's.
Results: Statistically at the end of 6 months there was no difference in the functional outcome.
Conclusions: Closed reduction and cast application and closed reduction with percutaneous k-wire fixation both treatment can be done as there is no superiority of one treatment over the other
