Distal end radius fractures are the most common fracture encountered by orthopedic surgeons, accounting for 17.5% of all adult fractures. Numerous complications arising during the course of management of these fractures are broadly categorized as immediate (nerve injury, compartment syndrome, and skin injury), early (loss of reduction, tendon rupture, stiffness of joints, and infection), and late complications (maluinon, delayed/nonunion, complex regional pain syndrome, and joint arthropathy). It is imperative for a surgeon to have thorough knowledge of these complications and methods required to prevent and manage them.
