102 patients scheduled for a volar locking plate fixation of a distal radius fracture were randomized to receive venous pressure assist system (VPAS) therapy or hand elevation for the reduction of hand edema following surgery. The primary outcome of interest was the reduction in hand edema, measured by hand and finger girth. Secondary outcomes of interest included pain on a Visual Analog Scale (VA...
