Displaced fractures of the distal radius (DRF) can be expected to have rupture of the linkage between the radius and the ulna. Previous studies addressing fixation of distal ulnar fractures concomitant with distal radius fractures are heterogeneous in fixation techniques. To evaluate available data, a review of literature was performed. On average fixation of a fracture of the distal ulna associated with fracture of the distal radius does not improve motion, strength, pain intensity, or radiographic alignment. However, it should be acknowledged that research is limited and quality of evidence is very low.
