Computer modeling of the wrist has followed other fields in the search for descriptive methods to understand the biomechanics of injury. Using patient-specific 3D computer models, we may better understand the biomechanics of wrist fractures in order to plan better care. We may better estimate fracture morphology and stability and evaluate surgical indications, design more adequate or effective surgical approaches and develop novel methods of therapy. The purpose of this review is to question the actual advances made in the understanding of wrist fractures using computer models.
