Adult patients of age more than 20 years, both genders with unstable distal radius end fracture were included in the study. Patients unfit for medical treatment, compound fracture with vascular injury and who were not willing for surgery were excluded from the study. Patients were divided into two groups with lottery method. Complications after surgery and outcomes (excellent, good, and poor) were assessed. SPSS version was used to analyze data. P value ≤ 0.05 was considered as significant.Results: mean age and time of union of Group A was 42.90±3.53 years and 3.80±1.58 respectively. There were more males than females i.e. 70% and 30% respectively. Majority of the patients’ outcome was good in both the groups’ i.e. 46.7% and 53.3% respectively.
