In the treatment of displaced, intra-articular distal radius fractures, locked volar plating has gained favor for its ease of approach, secure fixation construct, and minimized soft tissue impingement. Numerous studies over the past several years have helped define the benefit of adding arthroscopic evaluation and assisted reduction to the repair of intra-articular fractures. In this video, Dr. Orfaly presents a technique for open reduction and volar plating with arthroscopically-assisted fragment reduction.
