This 67 year old lady had a bad fall resulting in a hip and a wrist fracture. The joint surface of the radius was shattered in many small pieces and not fixable in the usual way. I used an alternative technique with a big bone graft and a bridging plate. The plate was removed 4 months after the original operation to allow the wrist to move again.
