Supplemental Method for Reduction of Irreducible Mallet Finger Fractures by the 2-Extension Block Technique: The Dorsal Counterforce Technique.

J Hand Surg Am 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: We suggest a method to achieve anatomical reduction in mallet finger fractures that are insufficiently treated by the 2-extension block wire technique.

Methods: We performed a retrospective review of 18 patients who were found to have an irreducible dorsal fragment and distal interphalangeal joint incongruence owing to rotation of the dorsal fragment in the sagittal plane. In these cases, we additionally employed a dorsal counterforce technique to supplement the 2-extension block technique. Read More

When the Injury's Healing Process Meets the Needs of a Top-Level Volleyball Player: A Nonconventional Treatment of a Mallet Fracture Reinjury.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2019 Feb;98(2):e10-e12

From the Department of Rehabilitation (DC, MZ, CF), and Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit (MB), Foligno Hospital, Foligno, Italy; and Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey (LÖ).

Managing top-level athlete's recovery after an injury is very complicated because it requires a challenging combination of clinical and social/professional aspects with the need to return as soon as possible to sports play. Herein, we report a top-level volleyball player for whom a finger splint combined with a custom made thermoplastic protection was used for the conservative management of a Mallet fracture reinjury. This way our player continued training and competitions in contrast to conventional rehabilitation protocols, which suggest to avoid new traumas until the healing phase is completed. Read More

The Hand to Elbow Clinic, 29a James Street West, Bath BA1 2BT, UK. Electronic address:

Hand fractures (excluding small avulsion fractures and scaphoid fractures) almost always unite with bone. The role of the hand surgeon is not to achieve bone union but to achieve stability in an adequate position, often with some displacement, and maintenance of good soft tissue gliding. This article establishes that many fractures treated operatively do no better and often could not realistically do better than with good nonoperative treatment. Read More

1 Orthopedic Hand and Upper Extremity Service, Massachusetts General Hospital - Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Radiographs and medical record of all adult patients with a mallet fracture in three hospitals between 2004 and 2014 were reviewed. International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes and text search in radiographic reports were used to identify all acute patients with potential mallet fractures in our institutional database. Manually checking, 392 true mallet fractures were identified among them, 78 had subluxation at the time of diagnosis and 19 had subluxation at a later time point during treatment. Read More

Problematic Pediatric Hand and Wrist Fractures.

JBJS Rev 2016 05;4(5)

1UC Davis School of Medicine, 2101A Education Building, 4610 X Street, Sacramento, CA 958172Boston Children's Hospital, HUN 213, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115.

Seymour fractures are open juxta-physeal fractures of the distal phalanx. A true lateral radiograph should be obtained for diagnosis, and treatment should include removal of the nail, irrigation and debridement of the fracture, and percutaneous Kirschner wire stabilization. Mallet fractures are more common in children than adults, and treatment is generally nonoperative for nondisplaced or minimally displaced fractures without volar subluxation of the distal phalanx; however, splinting compliance should be carefully assessed in younger populations.

G E Giddins

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2016 Sep 22;41(7):696-700. Epub 2016 May 22.

Royal United Hospital, Bath, UK

Unlabelled: Bony mallet injuries with a large dorsal fracture fragment may sublux giving a poor outcome. The hypothesis that was tested was that subluxation could be predicted by extension stress lateral radiographs. It was anticipated that the main distal fracture fragment would glide and be stable or pivot and be unstable. Read More

Review of Acute Traumatic Closed Mallet Finger Injuries in Adults.

Arch Plast Surg 2016 Mar 18;43(2):134-44. Epub 2016 Mar 18.

Department of Hand Surgery, SOS main, CCOM, University Hospital of Strasbourg, FMTS, University of Strasbourg, Illkirch, France.

In adults, mallet finger is a traumatic zone I lesion of the extensor tendon with either tendon rupture or bony avulsion at the base of the distal phalanx. High-energy mechanisms of injury generally occur in young men, whereas lower energy mechanisms are observed in elderly women. The mechanism of injury is an axial load applied to a straight digit tip, which is then followed by passive extreme distal interphalangeal joint (DIPJ) hyperextension or hyperflexion. Read More

Modular to Monoblock: Difficulties of Detaching the M(2)a-Magnum(TM) Head Are Common in Metal-on-metal Revisions.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2016 Sep 3;474(9):1999-2005. Epub 2016 Mar 3.

Department of Surgery, Oulu University Hospital and University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland.

Background: Modern hip implants typically feature modular heads, which allow for easy exchange and removal from the femoral stem at the time of revision. However, owing to fretting, corrosion, or cold welding, the modular head may be difficult or impossible to separate from the underlying trunnion, especially if the implant has titanium interfaces between the head and the stem. We have repeatedly encountered difficulty removing the titanium sleeve adapter in the M(2)a-Magnum(TM) implant. Read More
