Distal Radius Fractures (Broken Wrist). The radius is the larger of the two bones of the forearm. The end toward the wrist is called the distal end. A fracture of the distal radius occurs when the area of the radius near the wrist breaks. Broken bone is in a good position, a plaster cast may be applied until the bone heals.

Hairline# distal radius. POP slab with support. Antiinflammatory and analgesics orally. Multivitamins and antioxidants orally. Reassurance and check x -ray after 2 weeks.
