This study compared the efficacy between external fixator combined with palmar T-plate internal fixation and simple plate internal fixation for the treatment of comminuted distal radius fractures. A total of 61 patients classified as type C according to the AO/ASIF classification underwent surgery for comminuted distal radius fractures.

Moreover, 19 patients received an external fixator combined with T-plate internal fixation, and 42 received simple plate internal fixation.
