The distal radius fractures (DRFs) are the second most common fracture in the elderly population. Despite their frequency, the optimal treatment of these fractures remains controversial. Several dogmatic myths on DRFs management may adversely affect their outcome and despite a strong trend versus surgical options, systematic reviews suggest that conservative treatment remains the safest option for DRFs in most cases. © 2013 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
