Abstrakt: We found no clear evidence of the clinical superiority of distal radius fracture surgery among older adults at one year.Surgical treatment, however, may yield a faster recovery to previous level of activity in elderly patients.With operative treatment, hardware-based problems may warrant secondary operations and implant removal, whereas in non-operative treatment, symptomatic loss of alignment and malunion can occur.In elderly patients, non-operative treatment can be considered to be the gold standard.
