Severity and configuration may vary, and therapeutic options are broad, but regardless of the course of treatment, all cases can potentially lead to malunion. When malunion requires surgical correction, the surgery can be technically demanding. Here, we demonstrate an alternative technique to perform corrective osteotomies for extra-articular or minimally displaced articular distal radius malunion. We provide simplification of the procedure by eliminating one of the planes taken into consideration when performing an osteotomy. This technique includes the use of a tricortical iliac bone graft, which we feel, provides dependable structural support, preventing collapse. The technique allows the surgeon an easy means to access the osteotomy gap and apply the graft. Finally, we supplement this surgical technique by providing our outcomes. Our data suggest that the technique effectively restores radiographic wrist parameters and provides good union rates. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
