Abstract: The radiological outcomes of 31 corrective osteotomies for malunion of the distal radius were assessed. The procedure re-established normal anatomy in the majority of cases. There was no significant difference in outcome between the dorsal and the palmar approach, but more secondary procedures for hardware removal were necessary with the dorsal approach.
