Clinical Trial Summary

There is no consensus about the best conservative treatment for patients with dorsally displaced distal radius fractures. The previous studies that have examined the most valid method for cast immobilization have lacked uniform and patient-rated outcome measures, proper randomization and sufficient study population. The aim of this study is to compare functional position cast to flexion-ulnar -deviation with dorsally displaced distal radius fractures in patients aged 65 years or older. The conservative treatment is performed in clinical practice by various health care professionals with different techniques of reduction which are not limited to any specific technique in this pragmatic, randomized controlled trial.
