Background: Fractures of the distal radius inside the joint are a common injury. Whether caused by high-energy trauma or, more commonly among the elderly and those with osteoporosis, low-energy trauma, these fractures tend to be unstable and require immediate medical attention. The use of external fixators for intra-articular distal radius fractures has been supplanted by the use of internal fixators. Aim and objectives: to examine the radiological and clinical results of treating distal radius fractures that occurred on the dorsum of the individual's right and left arms (dorsal or dorso-radial) using a fragment-specific plate (2.5 mm). Subjects and methods: Hospitals associated with AL_Azhar University cared for twenty patients with AO type B, C dorsal cominutions intra-articular distal radius fractures between May 2022 and January 2023. Result: DASH score and the Mayo score revealed statistically substantial variations among the groups. There was no statistically significant disparity among pre- and post-operative radiological measures. Conclusion: Dorsal plating is a successful therapy for intra articular distal radius fracture resulting in restored wrist anatomy, regained clinical function, and high case satisfaction in most cases
