Fractures of the distal radius can cause major functional disorders when the reduction was not perfect, especially articular fractures. Treatment of malunion is difficult. It requires a deep understanding of the particular anatomy of the distal articular surface in direct contact with the wrist. A precise preoperative planning will reduce and fix the different fragments in good position.
