Frontal and lateral views of the wrist demonstrate distal radius fracture with dorsal displacement of the wrist due to angulation (apex volar) at the fracture site.


  • Smith fracture is a variant of distal radius fracture where distal fracture fragment is angulated towards the palmar surface.
  • Barton fracture is an intra-articular distal radius fracture with carpal dislocation.
