Volar plating demonstrated cost-efficacy relative to cast immobilization for displaced Distal radial

The authors presented their findings in the Orthopaedic Trauma Association meeting 2018. 90 patients with a displaced- extraarticular distal radius fracture were randomized to either volar plate fixation or to nonoperative treatment with immobilization. The purpose of this study was to assess cost-effectiveness. Total cost per patient over 12 months was reported to be lower in the volar plate group compared to the nonoperative group, while quality-adjusted life-years gained was greater in the volar plate group. As a result, the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio favoured volar plate fixation. What should I remember most? In management of displaced, extraarticular distal radius fracture, th
