Distal Radius Fractures (DRF) are among the most common in 10-15% people. The high frequency and socio-economic aspects of this traumatic disease make its epidemiological research and development of preventive strategies to reduce fracture risk particularly relevant. The social significance of the problem is based on common complications after imprecise surgical treatment and rehabilitation, as well as on the high rates of unsatisfactory functional results.
Epidemiological evidence for distal radius fractures among the population can be used for planning and organizing prevention and structuring of adequate medical care for these injuries.
Ensuring timely preventive strategy for people at high risk of fractures is a challenge for health systems worldwide. An important link between patients at risk and their proper treatment is done through the identification and risk assessment in these patients based on sound epidemiological study.
