A minimally invasive fixation technique for selected patients with fifth metacarpal neck fracture.

Injury 2016 Jun 11;47(6):1270-5. Epub 2016 Feb 11.

Ac─▒badem Taksim Hospital, Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Istanbul, Turkey.

Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the short-term results of treatment of fifth metacarpal neck fractures using a minimally invasive surgical fixation technique and the gold standard splinting method in a selected patient group of office workers with high expectations.

Patients And Methods: Twenty-four male patients (mean age: 28 years, range: 18-46 years) satisfying the inclusion criteria were enrolled in the study in two groups: surgical treatment and splinting (U-shaped ulnar gutter) groups. Hygienic interactions during daily activities and the use of keyboard and pens were allowed in the posttreatment period. Read More

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

J South Orthop Assoc 1995 ;4(4):269-76

Department of Orthopaedics, University of North Carolina, Raleigh 27610-1255, USA.

A thermoplastic fracture-brace was compared to closed reduction with ulnar gutter splinting in the treatment of 38 isolated fractures of the fifth metacarpal with angulation more than 40 degrees at the neck or 25 degrees in the diaphysis. Patient profiles, fracture patterns, compliance rates, and time to clinical union were similar in the two treatment groups. The two treatment methods improved fracture angulation by the same amount, to about one half of the initial angulation. Read More

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

Accurate reduction and splinting of the common boxer's fracture.

Orthop Rev 1990 Nov;19(11):994-6

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Affiliated Programs, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A simple and efficient method of achieving and maintaining reduction of a boxer's fracture (neck of the fifth metacarpal) is described. This method can be implemented during drying of the plaster splint, and adequate roentgenograms can be taken without the presence of redundant plaster over the fracture site found with the traditional ulnar gutter splint.
