Coronal splits of the distal radius, or volar rim fractures, are classified as fracture type 23B3 according to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO)/Orthopedic Trauma Association classifications. These fractures are a subset of unstable distal radius fractures caused by shearing forces. Moreover, fractures involving the volar rim can be part of a complex high-energy impaction fracture. Although these fractures are uncommon, their fixation is required to restore wrist and forearm kinematics. Unlike some fractures of the dorsal rim, volar rim fractures are rarely amenable to closed treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the results of distal radius fractures with the involvement of the volar rim fixed with the DePuy-Synthes Volar Rim Plate.
