Objective: Compare the functional outcome of conservative management by closed reduction and cast with open reduction and placement of anatomical volar plate system DVR, in EDR fractures after rehabilitation. Material and Methods: We plan a retrospective study of 70 patients with a mean age of 54 years who suffered a EDR fracture, 35 patient treated conservatively and 35 treated by plate DVR. All carried out rehabilitation treatment and functional outcomes were assessed from the year of the intervention, using the scale de Mayo Wrist Score (MWS). The range of movement was measured by manual goniometer and strength with the scale by international standards. Results: The time from intervention until the beginning of the rehabilitation was 57 days on average, by an average of 28.97 sessions. The functional outcome showed a mean of 88.43/100 with MWS, a year after the fracture, considered good, without showing statistically significant differences between the two groups. The reemployment of individuals who worked in his old job was 88.9%. Conclusions: The treatment of fractures of EDR followed by rehabilitation treatment allows a good functional recovery independent of the treatment
