INTRODUCTION: Distal end radius fractures are among the most common fractures of upper extremity. They are treated in many ways & various radiological measurements are taken care of during reduction. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of ulnar variance on range of motion and on functional outcome of wrist joint after distal end radius fractures treated with closed methods.

PATIENTS & METHODS: Prospective study of 50 patients of distal end radius fractures, treated with closed methods, done. Follow up done fore 1 year. Range of motion checked at every visit. Proper physiotherapy was given to all patients.

RESULTS: Among 50, 38 patients developed full Range of Motion at 6 months and among 38, 30 were having positive ulnar variance but supination and pronation was terminally painful, but that was not hampering their day to day activities.

CONCLUSION: There is no effect of ulnar variance on Range of Motion and on functional outcome after Distal end Radius fractures treated with closed methods if proper rehabilitation is given
