This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To compare the effects (benefits and harms) of internal fixation versus other methods of surgical intervention (percutaneous pinning; external fixation) for distal radius fractures in adults.
Our main comparisons will be:
-internal fixation versus method of surgery that is not internal fixation; i.e. percutaneous pinning or external fixation or a combination of these two methods
-internal fixation versus percutaneous pinning
-internal fixation versus external fixation
