Summary of "International Survey: Factors Associated with Operative Treatment of Distal Radius Fractures and Implications for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Appropriate Use Criteria."

Through an international survey, we assessed whether deciding to operatively treat an intraarticular distal radius fracture (DRF) is guided by identifiable patient and surgeon factors. Additionally, we compared surgeons' treatment decisions to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) treatment recommendations.
