An Update on Treatment Modalities for Ulnar Nerve Entrapment: A Literature Review.

Anesth Pain Med 2020 Dec 24;10(6):e112070. Epub 2020 Dec 24.

Southcoast Health Physicians Group Pain Medicine, Wareham, Massachusetts.

Context: Ulnar nerve entrapment is a relatively common entrapment syndrome second only in prevalence to carpal tunnel syndrome. The potential anatomic locations for entrapment include the brachial plexus, cubital tunnel, and Guyon's canal. Ulnar nerve entrapment is more so prevalent in pregnancy, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and patients with occupations involving periods of prolonged elbow flexion and/or wrist dorsiflexion.

The Measurement of the Inclination Angle of the Hamate and Analysis of the Inclination Angle for the Rotation Deformity of the Little Finger in the Fixation of the Carpometacarpal Joint.

Orthop Surg 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Nanjing First Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, China.

Objective: Complex base fractures of the fifth metacarpal bone and dislocation of the fifth carpometacarpal joint are more prone to internal rotation deformity of the little finger sequence after fixation with a transarticular plate. In the past, we have neglected that there is actually a certain angle of external rotation in the hamate surface of transarticular fixation. This study measured the inclination angle of the hamate surface relative to the fifth metacarpal surface for clinical reference. Read More

Ulnar-Sided Wrist Pain in the Athlete: Sport-Specific Demands, Clinical Presentation, and Management Options.

Curr Sports Med Rep 2021 Jun;20(6):312-318

Department of Physical Medicine, Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, University of Puerto Rico, San Juan, PUERTO RICO.

Abstract: Ulnar-sided wrist injuries are common in sports that require repeated pronosupination, wrist radial/ulnar deviation, axial loading, and gripping equipment. Common anatomic structures affected include the triangular fibrocartilage complex, extensor carpi ulnaris tendon, distal radioulnar and ulnocarpal joints, and hamate bone. Presenting symptoms include pain with activity, swelling, possible snapping or clicking, and reproduction of symptoms with provocative maneuvers. Read More

Sensitivity and Specificity of Radiographs in the Diagnosis of Little and/or Ring Carpometacarpal Joint Injuries.

J Hand Microsurg 2021 Apr 9;13(2):89-94. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, United Kingdom.

 Little and ring finger carpometacarpal joints (CMCJs) injuries are commonly missed due to misinterpretation of radiographs. We aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of four different radiographic views.  Radiographs (posteroanterior [PA], lateral [LAT], pronated oblique [POL], and supinated oblique [SOL] views) showing normal findings or little/ring finger CMCJ injuries were shown to two cohorts of orthopaedic trainees and a cohort of emergency nurse practitioners.

Carpometacarpal 4/5 Fracture Dislocations: Fracture Morphology and Surgical Treatment.

J Hand Microsurg 2020 Oct 26;12(Suppl 1):S21-S27. Epub 2019 Jun 26.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hand and Upper Extremity Service, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

We conducted a retrospective review of six patients with carpometacarpal (CMC) ⅘ fracture-dislocations managed with ORIF by a single surgeon between October 2006 and August 2017. An open, dorsal approach to the hamate was used with a combination of interfragmentary screw fixation and Kirschner wire reduction in the CMC joints. At a mean of 96 days follow-up (range: 31-265), all patients had recovered wrist motion, excellent grip strength, and complete resolution of pain. Read More

Case Report: Bridge Plating for Unstable PIP Fracture Dislocation.

Arch Bone Jt Surg 2020 Nov;8(6):739-743

Department of Orthopedics, Rothman Institute, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) fracture-dislocation is a relatively common injury that results from "jamming" a finger. Treatment hinges on the degree of articular surface involvement, which determines stability of the joint. For unstable injuries, a variety of surgical interventions have been described including extension block pinning, open reduction internal fixation, volar plate arthroplasty, static or dynamic external fixation, and hemi-hamate reconstruction.

Carpometacarpal Dislocation of the Third to Fifth Fingers and an Associated Fracture of the Hamate in a Military Paratrooper.

Case Rep Orthop 2020 30;2020:2861604. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

First Department of Orthopedics, 401 General Military Hospital of Athens, Athens 11525, Greece.

Multiple carpometacarpal dislocations with a simultaneous fracture of the hamate represent less than 1% of all injuries to the hand and wrist regions, with a scarcity of published cases. These injuries usually require a great force, and diagnosis can be missed or delayed because of the high likelihood of other severe concomitant injuries. We report a case of acute closed dislocation of the third through fifth carpometacarpal joints and an associated fracture of the hamate in a military paratrooper. Read More

Functional Outcome following Headless Compression Screw Fixation for Hamate Fractures.

J Wrist Surg 2020 Apr 30;9(2):164-169. Epub 2019 Aug 30.

Department of Hand and Trauma Surgery, Maasstad Ziekenhuis, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Hamate fractures can be treated nonoperatively, with the percutaneous Kirschner wire (K-wire) fixation, or with excision of a fractured hook of the hamate. Screw fixation is less popular owing to the risk of iatrogenic ulnar nerve injury. The aim of this study was to present the functional results of patients with hamate fractures treated with headless compression screws (HCS). Read More

Hospital for Special Surgery, 523 East 72nd Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10021, USA. Electronic address:

Carpal fractures of bones other than the scaphoid occur at a much lower rate than scaphoid fractures. The close relationship between the carpus, intrinsic and extrinsic wrist ligaments, and wrist kinematics makes a thorough history, clinical examination, and interpretation of imaging for carpal malalignment essential. Carpal malalignment should be addressed with reduction and fixation. Read More
