A series of 50 consecutive patients with Colles' fractures which redisplaced after reduction underwent either remanipulation and a plaster cast or remanipulation and external fixation. The external fixator group achieved a significantly better anatomical result than simple remanipulation and replastering. Where plaster immobilization has failed, external fixation gives a better anatomical result than remanipulation and replastering.
