A retrospective review of 66 T-shaped incisions for exposure of the dorsal distal radius and wrist was performed. The incision provided excellent exposure in all cases and no additional incisions were required. Cosmesis was considered acceptable by all patients. Complications occurred in 6% and were more likely in patients undergoing fixation of acute distal radius fractures using Kirschner wires which protruded through the skin flaps.
