461 patients with dorsally displaced distal radius fractures were randomized to undergo either volar locking-plate fixation or K-wire fixation. This study aimed to prove, through comparison, the null hypothesis that Patient-Reported Wrist Evaluation (PRWE) scores do not vary between treatments. The primary outcome of interest was PRWE results and secondary outcomes included DASH functional scores,...
