Abstract
Objective: To determine functional outcome by mean dash score with Kirschner wire fixation versus volar locking plate fixation for management of patients with dorsally displaced fractures of distal radius
Methodology: A total of 100 patients of dorsally displaced fractures of distal radius (50 in each group) were included in this study. Randomization was done by the lottery method. Group A fractures were fixed by percutaneous k-wires while in group B fractures were fixed by volar locking plate.
Results: Mean age of the patients was 46.708.86 and 45.729.11 years in group A and B, respectively. There were 34 males (68%) in group A and 33 males (66%) in group B while females were 16 (32%) in group A and 17 (34%) in group B. Right side was involved in 41 patients (82%) of group A and 37(74%) of group B. Left side was involved in 9 patients (18%) of group A and 13(26%) of group B. Mean dash score in group A was 31.493.17 and in group 20.963.17 (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Use of a volar locking plate resulted in better early post-operative function. Volar locking plate achieved better radiographic reduction and measured grip strength. An earlier recovery of function may be of advantage to patients.

Key words: Fixation devices. Kirschner wires, Radius Fractures.
