Wrist arthroscopy has been used as an important adjunct procedure to distal radius fracture management. This procedure allows minimal surgical intervention and provides excellent visualization of the joint for anatomical restoration of articular fracture of the distal radius and early management of associated injuries. To many, it is still technically challenging to adequately perform arthroscopy in the distal radius fractures. With this review, we aimed to provide an updated arthroscopic technique in the management of distal radius fractures and potential pitfalls of this technique.
