Trial Phone: 321.841.3867
IRB No: 14.071.06
Principal Investigator: Kenneth J Koval, MD
Age Group: Adult
Secondary Protocol No: DVT
Applicable Disease Sites: Distal Radius
Therapies Involved: Observational study
To determine the sensitivity of the DTV in detecting screw penetration that would otherwise be missed in routine intraoperative assessment of distal radius fractures with volar locked plating.
Patients with a distal radius fracture.
