4. Evaluation of Articular Surface Similarity of Hemi-Hamate Grafts and Proximal Middle Phalanx Morphology: A 3D Geometric Morphometric Approach. (PubMed)

Evaluation of Articular Surface Similarity of Hemi-Hamate Grafts and Proximal Middle Phalanx Morphology: A 3D Geometric Morphometric Approach. Hemi-hamate arthroplasty has been described as a viable treatment option for unstable proximal interphalangeal joint fracture-dislocations. The procedure uses a dorsal distal hamate osteochondral graft to recreate the injured volar middle phalanx (MP) proximal base. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the similarity in shape of these articular (...) surfaces using quantitative 3-dimensional methods.Three-dimensional virtual renderings were created from laser scans of the articular surfaces of the dorsal distal hamate and the volar MP bases of the index, middle, ring, and little fingers from cadaveric hands of 25 individuals. Three-dimensional landmarks were obtained from the articular surfaces of each bone and subjected to established geometric morphometric analytical approaches to quantify shape. For each individual, bone shapes were evaluated

6. What Middle Phalanx Base Fracture Characteristics are Most Reliable and Useful for Surgical Decision-making? (PubMed)

What Middle Phalanx Base Fracture Characteristics are Most Reliable and Useful for Surgical Decision-making? Fracture-dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal joint are vexing because subluxation and articular damage can lead to arthrosis and the treatments are imperfect. Ideally, a surgeon could advise a patient, based on radiographs, when the risk of problems merits operative intervention, but it is unclear if middle phalanx base fracture characteristics are sufficiently reliable (...) to be useful for surgical decision making.We evaluated (1) the degree of interobserver agreement as a function of fracture characteristics, (2) the differences in interobserver agreement between experienced and less-experienced hand surgeons, and (3) what fracture characteristics and surgeon characteristics were associated with the decision for operative treatment.Ninety-nine (33%) of 296 hand surgeons evaluated 21 intraarticular middle phalanx base fractures on lateral radiographs. Eighty-one surgeons (82

7. Quantitative 3-dimensional CT analyses of fractures of the middle phalanx base (PubMed)

Quantitative 3-dimensional CT analyses of fractures of the middle phalanx base Quantitative 3-dimensional computed tomography (3DCT) analyses can provide a more detailed understanding of fracture morphology. For fracture-dislocation of the proximal interphalangeal joint, the extent of fragmentation of the volar lip of the middle phalanx-a factor that might influence treatment-is not always apparent from radiographs. We hypothesized that there is no correlation between number of fracture (...) fragments and the percentage of articular surface area involved in intra-articular fractures of the base of the middle phalanx using quantitative 3DCT analyses.We used 13 computed tomography scans with a slice thickness of 1.25 mm or less to create 3-dimensional models of 15 intra-articular fractures of the base of the middle phalanx in 13 patients. We resized 3-dimensional models of a non-fractured middle phalanx of the same hand to fit the fractured middle phalanx in order to approximate the size

8. Antegrade Joint-Sparing Intramedullary Wiring for Middle Phalanx Shaft Fractures. (PubMed)

Antegrade Joint-Sparing Intramedullary Wiring for Middle Phalanx Shaft Fractures. To evaluate the outcome for surgical stabilization of middle phalanx shaft fractures with joint-sparing antegrade intramedullary K-wire fixation.We treated 15 extra-articular transverse or short oblique shaft fractures of the middle phalanx in 13 patients. All fractures were treated with closed reduction internal fixation with antegrade joint-sparing intramedullary K-wires. Patients had a minimum follow-up of 1 (...) intramedullary wiring for extra-articular transverse and short oblique shaft  fracture of middle phalanx is a simple, safe, inexpensive, and joint-sparing technique that provides enough fracture stability, even in cases of associated injuries, for early rehabilitation and functional recovery with the expectation of a good to excellent outcome.Therapeutic IV.Copyright © 2014 American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

11. Two Versus 3 Lag Screws for Fixation of Long Oblique Proximal Phalanx Fractures of the Fingers: A Cadaver Study. (PubMed)

Two Versus 3 Lag Screws for Fixation of Long Oblique Proximal Phalanx Fractures of the Fingers: A Cadaver Study. To compare 2- versus 3-screw fixation for oblique fractures of the proximal phalanx in a cadaver model that simulates active finger motion.We experimentally cut the proximal phalanges of the index, middle, and ring fingers of 9 cadaveric hands. Five fingers were assigned to a control group with no fixation, and 22 were fixed with either 2 or 3 lag screws. One digit was excluded (...) of these groups were equivalent with a power of 90%.Biomechanical stability during simulated active motion protocol did not differ in simulated proximal phalanx fractures treated with 2 lag screws or 3.Fracture fixation using 2 screws may be more cost and time effective and, therefore, more attractive to the surgeon, even when 3 screws can be placed. Furthermore, surgeons may consider using 2 screws rather than resorting to plate fixation when 3-screw fixation is not possible for these types

14. The Central Slip Fracture: Results of Operative Treatment of Volar Fracture Subluxations/Dislocations of the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint. (PubMed)

The Central Slip Fracture: Results of Operative Treatment of Volar Fracture Subluxations/Dislocations of the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint. Fractures of the base of the middle phalanx are particularly challenging. Dorsal fracture-subluxations/dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint are relatively common, but the volar fracture-subluxation/dislocation, the so-called "central slip fracture," is quite rare. The current study presents our experience with surgically treated (...) patients with central slip fracture subluxation/dislocation with a minimum of 1 year follow-up. We hypothesized that the majority of patients with a central slip fracture-subluxation/dislocation have poor outcomes.Thirteen patients with central slip fracture-subluxations/dislocation were identified from departmental billing records between 2003 and 2013. Nine patients completed the study follow-up examination and 8 were included in the final analysis. Clinical data assessed included age at injury, sex

15. Accuracy in Screw Selection in a Cadaveric, Small-Bone Fracture Model. (PubMed)

Accuracy in Screw Selection in a Cadaveric, Small-Bone Fracture Model. Using a cadaveric model simulating clinical situations experienced during open reduction and internal fixation of proximal phalangeal fractures, the aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between level of training and the rates of short, long, and ideal screw length selection based on depth gauge use without fluoroscopy assistance.A dorsal approach to the proximal phalanx was performed on the index, middle (...) , and ring fingers of 4 cadaveric specimens, and 3 drill holes were placed in each phalanx. Volunteers at different levels of training then measured the drill holes with a depth gauge and selected appropriate screw sizes. The rates of short, long, and ideal screw selection were compared between groups based on level of training. Ideal screws were defined as a screw that reached the volar cortex but did not protrude more than 1 mm beyond it.Eighteen participants including 3 hand fellowship-trained

16. The Relationship Between Hemihamate Graft Size and Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Flexion for Reconstruction of Fracture-Dislocations: A Biomechanical Study. (PubMed)

The Relationship Between Hemihamate Graft Size and Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Flexion for Reconstruction of Fracture-Dislocations: A Biomechanical Study. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between hemihamate graft size and proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint flexion in a biomechanical fracture-dislocation model.We simulated middle finger PIP fracture-dislocations in 5 cadaver hands by resecting 50% of the palmar articular surface of the middle phalanx (P2) base (...) . Fluoroscopy was used to confirm dorsal subluxation of the middle phalanx base after resection. A 10-mm osteochondral hamate graft was contoured to reconstruct the volar lip of the middle phalanx and was progressively downsized by 2-mm increments for each trial. A computer-controlled articulator and jig simulated active flexion and extension of the fingers. Maximum PIP flexion was measured at each graft size using fluoroscopy and digital imaging software. Clinically significant flexion block was defined

of metacarpal, proximal, or middle phalanx fractures from 2008 to 2015 using the American College of Surgeons' National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database. A total of 3,506 patients were identified and patient variables and infection incidence were compared between open and closed injuries, as well as open injuries managed within 1 day of admission and those treated on an elective basis or treated more than 1 day after admission. Bivariate analysis was used to determine independent risk factors (...) for postoperative infection.Although 34.2% of open hand fractures were taken urgently to the operating room, the diagnosis of open fractures along with nonurgent surgical treatment for open fractures was associated with a low incidence of postoperative infection. In addition, smoking was a risk factor for postoperative infection although anatomic location (phalanx vs metacarpal) was not.Patients undergoing surgery for metacarpal or proximal/middle phalangeal fractures are not at greater risk for infection based

18. Surgical Management of Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Repetitive Stress Epiphyseal Fracture Nonunion in Elite Sport Climbers. (PubMed)

Surgical Management of Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Repetitive Stress Epiphyseal Fracture Nonunion in Elite Sport Climbers. Repetitive stress fracture of the middle phalanx epiphysis is an injury specific to elite adolescent sport climbers. As sport climbing becomes increasingly popular in younger age groups, an increased number of these injuries have been reported in recent years. To date, treatment of these fractures has been nonsurgical, with strict rest and physiotherapy prescribed until (...) fracture union. However, when these patients present in a delayed fashion with an established nonunion, nonsurgical treatment may fail, leading to disabling chronic pain and/or digital deformity in some cases. In this article, we present 2 cases of surgical treatment for finger middle phalanx repetitive stress epiphyseal fracture nonunion, using a percutaneous spot drilling epiphysiodesis technique.Copyright © 2018 American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

20. Accuracy of bedside ultrasonography for the diagnosis of finger fractures. (PubMed)

Accuracy of bedside ultrasonography for the diagnosis of finger fractures. Diagnosis of bone fractures by ultrasonography is becoming increasingly popular in emergency medicine practice. We aimed to determine the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of point-of-care ultrasonography (PoCUS) compared with plain radiographs in proximal and middle phalanx fractures.Between August 2012 and July 2013, adult patients presenting to our emergency department with a possible (by clinical evaluation (...) ) proximal or middle phalanx fracture of finger were invited to participate in this prospective cohort study. From those granting consent to participate, anteroposterior and lateral radiographs were obtained. PoCUS was then performed by emergency physicians blinded to the radiograph results. The criterion standard test for diagnosis was radiograph interpretation by an orthopedic surgeon blinded to the ultrasonographic findings.During the study period, 212 patients with an injury to the proximal or middle
