Colles’ fracture is one of the commonest injuries seen in orthopeadic practice, so is the recurrence of displacement and deformity following treatment. In most of the series using conventional methods of treatment many unsatisfactory results have been reported especially in cases of comminuted fractures. Sarmiento et al. (1975) described functional bracing in supination for treatment of Colles’ fracture as it reduced the deforming forces of brachioradialis which in his opinion tries to recreate the deformity in pronation, along with other sequelae of immobilization. This study was undertaken to evaluate anatomical and functional results in comminuted Colles’ fracture treated by functional bracing in supination.
