Table 4 Multivariate logistic regression analysis of risk factors for overall complications or secondary procedure following VLP fixation of distal radius fractures

From: Incidence of complications and secondary procedure following distal radius fractures treated by volar locking plate (VLP)

  OR and 95% CI p value
Overall complications
 AO type C fracture 2.6 (1.2 to 4.0) 0.02
 Open fracture (vs closed) 4.2 (1.9 to 6.5) < 0.001
 Significant collapse of the lunate fossa 2.9 (1.3 to 4.3) 0.001
Secondary procedure
 Significant collapse of the lunate fossa 3.7 (1.7 to 6.4) < 0.001
 Low-volume of surgeon 2.5 (1.2 to 3.6) 0.018
