Dorsal bridge plating for distal radius factures

Contributors:Katherine Faust and Jacob Brubacher

Internal distraction, or bridge plating, of distal radius fractures is a valuable tool for highly comminuted and unstable fracture patterns. Additionally, this technique is valuable for those fractures that extend into the metadiaphysis or for multiply injured patients requiring stable fixation for mobilization. Bridge plating allows for stable fixation in poor bone quality and early use of the injured extremity.
