Objective: DIP joint OA is common but has few cost-effective, evidence-based interventions. Pain and deformity [radial or ulnar deviation of the joint or loss of full extension (extension lag)] frequently lead to functional and cosmetic issues. We investigated whether splinting the DIP joint would improve pain, function and deformity. Read More

A comparison of immediate postreduction splinting constructs for controlling initial displacement of fractures of the distal radius: a prospective randomized study of long-arm versus short-arm splinting.

J Hand Surg Am 2006 May-Jun;31(5):766-70

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, New York University/Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York, USA.

Purpose: To compare, in a prospective, randomized manner, the sugar tong splint with a short-arm radial gutter splint in terms of patient satisfaction and the ability to maintain reduction of distal radius fractures.

Methods: A total of 118 patients with displaced distal radius fractures were enrolled; 85 patients (85 fractures) were available for follow-up evaluation and were included in the study population. There were 26 men and 59 women with a mean age of 64 years. Read More

Hand Clin 1994 May;10(2):199-209

Hand Rehabilitation Services, Chicago, Illinois.

Fabrication of the dynamic traction splint is described in step-by-step fashion in order to aid surgeons to understand the principles of application of the method and to assist hand therapists to make the splint. The new 6-inch diameter arcuate hoop and the radial or ulnar gutter base splint are detailed. Modification of continuous passive motion machines is described for use in conjunction with dynamic traction. Read More
