Objectives: To observe functional outcome of Colles' fracture managed by Percutaneous Crossed Kirschner Wires. Study Design: Descriptive case study. Setting: Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Liaquat University of Medical and health science, Hyderabad/ Jamshoro. Period: 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016. Methods: 124 patients with Colles' fractures were taken for this study. For operative procedure all patients were operated under general anaesthesia. Close manipulating was done, reduction was checked under Image Intensifier and fracture were fixed with 2 cross k-wires, one starting from radial steroid and engaging in medial cortex of the radius and one from medial side of distal radius tip and engaging lateral cortex of radius. Functional outcome was assessed after 3 months and recorded on preformed proforma. Results: functional outcome of percutaneous Kirschner wire fixation for Colles' fracture was observed in 80.65% (100/124) cases. Conclusions: functional outcome of percutaneous Kirschner wire fixation is satisfactory in Colles' fractures and it appears to be an effective, easy, and technically less demanding procedure for stabilization, so this procedure can be applied for patients with these fractures. Key words: Colles' fractures, Percutaneous Kirschner wire fixation, distal radius bone fracture
