Factors Related to Failure of Conservative Treatment in Volar Plate Avulsion Fractures of the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint.

Clin Orthop Surg 2020 Sep 3;12(3):379-385. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, National Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Backgroud: Volar plate avulsion fractures of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint are a common hand injury and have been treated conservatively with favorable results. We assumed that conservative treatment of volar plate avulsion fractures of the PIP joint would be unsuccessful if the fracture fragment, even if small, was much displaced or rotated and that delayed excision of the avulsion fractures would result in good outcomes. We report clinical and radiological outcomes of conservative treatment of volar plate avulsion fractures of the PIP joint and risk factors for failure of conservative treatment. Read More

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2020 Sep;25(3):378-383

Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Universal Hospital, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Dislocations of thumb interphalangeal (IP) joint are rare injuries due to inherent stability of the joint. This report presents a case of complex irreducible dorsal IP joint dislocation of thumb due to interposition of four structures - volar plate, sesamoid bone, flexor pollicis longus tendon and digital nerve which is perhaps the only case reported so far in literature where more than three structures have been implicated for this joint irreducibility. The author presents a comparative review of similar case reports previously reported in literature listing the controversies in management and forming a broad consensus in the management of these difficult injuries.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2021 Jan 11;31(1):189-192. Epub 2020 Jul 11.

Department of Orthopedics, AIIMS, Raipur, India.

Second metacarpophalangeal dislocation is a rare entity, wherein correct diagnosis can be achieved by careful and experienced clinical examination that must be followed by radiological examination. This mostly requires open reduction either by dorsal or volar approach. Open reduction by volar approach is being used most widely but has more incidence of postoperative loss of sensation at volar aspect of finger due to neurovascular injury (digital nerve and vessel) and also required more extensive dissection.

Opening-wedge V-shaped corrective osteotomy for malunited fractures of metacarpal bones.

J Orthop 2020 May-Jun;19:208-211. Epub 2019 Nov 6.

Department of Traumatology, Orthopaedics and Outpatient Surgery, Samara State Medical University, Samara, Russian Federation.

Currently, the most commonly used method of treatment of patients with fractures of the metacarpal bones is closed reposition with immobilization of short-arm cast. This often leads to dislocation of fragments, their malunion, which leads to wrist functionality disorders and reduces the quality of patients' life. The main way to eliminate the deformities ‒ osteotomy of the metacarpal bones, followed by osteosynthesis. Read More
