Abstract

Five comminuted and displaced fractures of the distal metaphysis of the radius were treated by a technique of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) with the aim of minimizing soft tissue damage and devascularization of the fracture fragments. This technique used the small AO T-shaped locking compression plate (AO LCP T-plate) and left the pronator quadratus intact. Radial inclination, palmar tilt, and ulnar variance were restored without loss of reduction in all five cases and the fractures healed at an average of 10 weeks, with good to excellent clinical outcomes.
