6 randomized controlled trials were included in the meta-analysis comparing the efficacy of closed reduction and external fixation (EF) with volar locking plate (VLP) fixation in the management of unstable distal radius fractures. Clinical outcomes, radiological outcomes, and complications were pooled over the first 12 months postoperatively. Pooled results favoured volar locked plating for 3-mont...
