Background and Objectives: There is controversy on the appropriate treatment of unstable distal radius fractures. The aim of the present study was to assess the surgical results of Pin-Plaster method in treatment of type C distal radial fractures of the AO classification. Materials and Methods: In a case series study, 23 patients with AO type-C distal radius fractures treated with Pin-Plaster method in Tabriz Shohada Hospital between 2008 and 2009 were studied. The patients underwent radiographic studies pre- and postoperatively and 6 months after surgery. Results: The mean age of the patients was 43.9 years. Nine patients had type C1; ten had type C2 and four had type C3 distal radial fractures of AO classification. There was statistically significant difference in the mean radial inclination, palmar (volar), radial length, radial shift and intraarticular step-off before and after surgery (P=0.001). Also we observed permanent acceptable correction ability of this method 6 month after operation comparing to early after operation (P=0.001). Conclusion: According to high correction ability, maintenance of this correction for six months, low cost and patient’s more mobility, the Pin-Plaster method is recommended in treatment of distal radial fractures.
