Distal radius fractures are a daily problem in the elderly. Its treatment remains a critical challenge due to the number of cases, the final cost, the level of X-ray irradiation and a demanding stability of the reduction in osteoporotic bone. The entire closed procedure requires strict percutaneous nailing. This offers advantages in terms of postoperative pain, intraoperative radiation and cost. The main problem so far has been the ability to ensure a stable reduction in time. This point is discussed with the introduction of the “Nail-o-flex®” nail. A continuous series of 105 patients is introduced.
