Fracture of the lower end of radius are supposed to be the most easy fracture to treat, yet are maximally mismanaged. One of the important intra-articular fractures at the distal end of radius are the Barton’s fracture-disolaction. In this study, out of total 1350 patients with fracture of lower-end of radius, 174 were Barton’s fracture-dislocation with an incidence of 12 per cent, mainly in the age group of 20-50 years. These fractures were classified into four types for appropriate treatment & planning. Total number of cases studied were 92, with a follow up of 24-60 months (average of 36 months.) All the cases in type I and II were managed mainly by closed manipulation and plaster immobilization, type III and IV by open reduction and internal fixation or by external fixators. Proper early planning of adequate treatment. This is essential to obviate pain and degeneration of this very important joint in the later years.
