Augmented External Fixation of Ulnar Carpometacarpal Joint Fracture Dislocations.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Cleveland Clinic.

Ulnar-sided carpometacarpal (CMC) joint fracture dislocations are relatively uncommon, frequently associated with fractures of the metacarpal base and/or hamate, and often sustained by young male individuals secondary to striking a hard object. The complexity of ulnar-sided CMC fracture dislocations necessitates careful restitution of anatomic alignment and joint congruency for mobility and stability. Miniaturization of the external fixation device has allowed application to the hand. Read More

Pan Afr Med J 2018 22;30:163. Epub 2018 Jun 22.

Service de Chirurgie Orthopédique et Traumatologique, CHU Habib Bourguiba de Sfax-Tunisie.

Old fractures and dislocations of the base of the fifth metacarpal may result in post-traumatic arthrosis which is troublesome from a functional point of view and characterized by a difficult management. Stabilized arthroplasty is based on arthroplastic resection of the base of the fifth metacarpal associated with lateral diaphysometaphyseal arthrodesis between the fourth and the fifth metacarpal. This study involving two patients aimed to describe the advantages and the peculiarities of stabilized arthroplasty compared to other techniques in the treatment of the sequelae of fractures and dislocations of the base of the fifth metacarpal.

Dorsal Buttress Plate Fixation of Ulnar Carpometacarpal Joint Fracture Dislocations.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2016 06;20(2):77-82

Department of Hand Surgery, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

We propose a method for open reduction and internal fixation of early and unstable ulnar (fourth and/or fifth) carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) fracture subluxations or dislocations using a dorsal buttress plate. In ulnar CMCJ fracture dislocations, the metacarpal has a tendency to displace dorsally and proximally when there is an axial load. Using the dorsal buttress plate method of fixation, a plate is fixed proximally to the hamate, aligned parallel and dorsal to the metacarpal to act as a buttress, to resist this movement. Read More

Motorcyclist's thumb: carpometacarpal injuries of the thumb sustained in motorcycle crashes.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2016 Sep 6;41(7):707-9. Epub 2015 Dec 6.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA The Curtis National Hand Center, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, MD, USA

Unlabelled: The purpose of this study was to investigate motorcycle crash thumb injury patterns. We hypothesized that ulnar collateral ligament injuries at the thumb metacarpophalangeal joint would be most common and there would be a side predilection due to the clutch and brake positions. Motorcyclist admissions following injury between 2002 and 2013 were reviewed, and phalangeal and metacarpal injuries treated acutely identified. Read More

Orthopedic Surgery Department, Hand Surgery Unit, Gentofte Hospital, Copenhagen University, 28, Kildegaardsvej, 2900 Hellerup, Denmark. Electronic address:

Multiple metacarpal dislocations combined with carpal fracture - dislocations are rare injuries. We report a new combination of these injuries where fracture-dislocation of the base of the 1st metacarpal bone occurred simultaneously with a comminuted fracture of the trapezium, dislocation of the trapezoid and metacarpal joints (2nd to 5th) and an avulsion fracture of the hamate. This specific carpal injury has not been previously described and our description will contribute to understanding the mechanism of these complex injuries. Read More

Singapore Med J 2014 Nov;55(11):e172-4

Hand and Microsurgery Section, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, 11 Jalan Tan Tock Seng, Singapore 308433.

We herein report an unusual case of a fracture-dislocation of the thumb metacarpal base. The injury consisted of features typical of Bennett's fracture-dislocation of the thumb trapeziometacarpal joint, with additional rotation of the proximal fragment, signifying a greater ligamentous injury. Radiographic features of this injury are discussed together with its pathomechanics. Read More

Fractures and dislocation of the base of the thumb metacarpal.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2015 Jan 13;40(1):42-50. Epub 2014 Oct 13.

Plastic Surgery Department, Strasbourg University Hospitals, FMTS, Strasbourg University Strasbourg, France.

Acute traumatic lesions of the base of the first metacarpal are frequent and their consequences can affect the opposition of the thumb. They usually occur after trauma in compression along the axis of the thumb in flexion. Restoring the anatomy and biomechanics of the trapeziometacarpal joint is essential when treating these injuries, hence why surgical treatment is usually indicated. Read More

Traumatic Floating 1st Metacarpal in a 14-Year-Old Boy Managed by Close Reduction and Thumb Spica Immobilization: A Rare Case Report.

J Orthop Case Rep 2014 Oct-Dec;4(4):44-7

Department of Orthopaedics, Gujarat Medical College & Hospital, Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India.

Introduction: Double dislocation of thumb metacarpal (MC) is a rare injury which may be secondarily complicated by growth plate injury in children. The management of floating 1st MC is also controversial since the treatment ranges from simple reduction to complex reconstruction surgeries. It is also important to understand the long-term results of different management strategies (close reduction, K-wire fixation, ligament reconstruction) as any residual stiffness or instability of thumb may result in severe disability of the hand.

Royal United Hospital, Bath, UK

Most hand fractures can be treated non-operatively. Some hand fractures, such as open injuries or markedly displaced intra-articular fractures, are almost always treated operatively. The treatment of many fractures, such as proximal interphalangeal joint fracture subluxations or spiral phalangeal fractures, is unclear. Read More

Outcome of uncemented trapeziometacarpal prosthesis for treatment of thumb carpometacarpal joint arthritis.

Indian J Orthop 2014 Jul;48(4):394-8

Department of Hand Surgery, John Hunter Hospital, Hunter New England Area Health Services, Lookout Road, New Lambton, Newcastle, NSW 2290, Australia.

Background: Osteoarthritis of the trapeziometacarpal joint of thumb occurs frequently and can be very disabling. Numerous surgical techniques including trapeziectomy with or without tendon interposition arthrodesis and partial or total joint arthroplasty with cemented and noncemented prosthesis have been described for the treatment of trapeziometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. Initial problems of osteolysis and implant loosening have been substantially reduced with improvement in implant design. Read More

Fifth carpometacarpal fracture dislocations fixed with Meta-HUS®: a series of 31 cases.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2015 Apr 3;25(3):477-82. Epub 2014 Aug 3.

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

Fracture dislocations of the fifth carpometacarpal are usually treated by percutaneous K-wires despite occasional complications: displacement, stiffness, malunions, and arthritis. Our aims were to evaluate the use of locked K-wire fixation for these fracture dislocations. Our series includes 31 fracture dislocations, five extra-articular and 26 articular, 21 of which were at the base of the metacarpal, four at the hamate, and one involving both the hamate and the metacarpal.
