  • Rolando fracture. [Journal Article]
    Clin Case Rep. 2019 Dec; 7(12):2603-2604.Windsor TA, Blosser KM, Richardson AC
  • Rolando fractures are associated with poor prognosis and when they occur on the dominant hand potential for disability is even greater. Timely imaging, placement into a thumb spica splint, and orthopedic surgery evaluation are integral to ensuring the best possible outcome for the patient.
  • StatPearls: Rolando Fractures [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Feletti Francesco F S. Maria delle Croci Hospital Varacallo Matthew M Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Kentucky School of Medicine BOOK
  • The term Rolando fracture was described for the first time in 1910 by Silvio Rolando, an Italian surgeon.[1]  The eponym is used to describe a comminuted articular fracture of the base of the thumb metacarpal,[2] while the name given partial articular fractures at the volar-ulnar base of the thumb metacarpal is a Bennett fracture.[3] The former describes more comminuted intra-articular patterns t…
  • Common Upper Extremity Fracture Eponyms: A Look Into What They Really Mean. [Historical Article]
    J Hand Surg Am. 2019 Apr; 44(4):331-334.Caldwell RA, Shorten PL, Morrell NT
  • Eponyms, whereas commonly used in hand surgery, are perhaps misused as often as they are used correctly. Many commonly used eponyms, such as Colles fracture, Barton fracture, Smith fracture, and Bennett fracture, were actually described decades before the development of radiographs. The goal of this article is to revisit the original descriptions of commonly used eponymous terms for distal radius…
  • Pediatric Osteoporosis: Diagnosis and Treatment Considerations. [Review]
    Drugs. 2017 Apr; 77(6):679-695.Marrani E, Giani T, … Cimaz R
  • Osteoporosis is now increasingly recognized in children due to the increased prevalence of disorders associated with bone loss. Fragility fractures represent the cardinal clinical features of pediatric osteoporosis and children presenting with fragility fractures deserve an accurate assessment to rule out a secondary cause. Indeed, in the pediatric population, a low bone mass is often a consequen…
  • Thumb Injuries in Athletes. [Review]
    Hand Clin. 2017 02; 33(1):161-173.Kadow TR, Fowler JR
  • Thumb injuries are common in athletes and present a challenging opportunity for upper extremity physicians. Common injuries include metacarpal base fractures (Bennett and Rolando types), ulnar and radial collateral ligament injuries, dislocation of the carpometacarpal and metacarpophalangeal joints, and phalanx fractures. This review, although not exhaustive, highlights some of the most common th…
  • Modified Suzuki frame for the treatment of difficult Rolando fractures. [Journal Article]
    Hand Surg Rehabil. 2016 10; 35(5):335-340.Giesen T, Neukom L, … Calcagni M
  • Fifteen consecutive patients with severely comminuted Rolando fractures were treated by closed reduction and fixation with a modified Suzuki frame without rubber bands, followed by immediate mobilization. All the fractures healed within 5 weeks. At 3 months, no rotational deformity was observed. The Kapandji score was equal that of the contralateral thumb in eight cases. No residual pain was reco…
  • [Fractures of the thumb ray]. [Review]
    Unfallchirurg. 2016 Dec; 119(12):978-985.Mehling IM, Schillo K, … Sauerbier M
  • Fractures of the first thumb ray are common and need accurate differential treatment to restore gripping hand functions. Displaced fractures of the distal and proximal phalanx of the thumb are often treated with screws or Kirschner wires. Stable fractures can also be treated non-operatively. Fractures of the base of the first metacarpal should be differentiated into extra-articular Winterstein fr…
  • Treatment of Rolando Fractures by Open Reduction and Internal Fixation using Mini T-Plate and Screws. [Journal Article]
    J Hand Microsurg. 2016 Aug; 8(2):80-5.Mumtaz MU, Ahmad F, … Wani I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Open reduction and internal fixation with mini T-plates in properly selected cases of Rolando fracture with large and single palmar and dorsal articular fragments offers several advantages such as allowing direct visualization of the joint, removal of interposed soft tissues, and exact anatomical restoration of the articular surface. The fixation in most cases is rigid enough to allow early mobilization without loss of reduction. Thus, complications such as stiffness as well as future arthrosis may be minimized. However, the technique is demanding and needs high degree of precision. The possibility of implant removal should be discussed beforehand with the patient.
  • Fractures and dislocation of the base of the thumb metacarpal. [Review]
    J Hand Surg Eur Vol. 2015 Jan; 40(1):42-50.Liverneaux PA, Ichihara S, … Bodin F
  • 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. We distingu…
  • A Wii virtual activity severe thumb metacarpal injury. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2012 Oct 10; 2012Galanopoulos I, Garlapati AK, … Kitsis C
  • In this paper we present a case of a severe thumb bone injury sustained during simulated sporting activity using a Wii games console. Although several types of injury related to this form of physical activity have been encountered during the last few years with increasing frequency, this particular basal thumb fracture has not been reported in the literature yet. This was a complex Rolando type o…
  • Fractures of the base of the thumb metacarpal. [Journal Article]
    Instr Course Lect. 2010; 59:343-56.Huang JI, Fernandez DL
  • The thumb trapeziometacarpal joint is a saddle joint that is subject to high compressive forces during prehensile hand function. Fractures to the base of the thumb metacarpal occur commonly following axial load to a partially flexed thumb. Although reduction is easily performed, severe deforming forces act to displace the fractures into a varus and shortened position. Most extra-articular fractur…
  • Thumb trauma: Bennett fractures, Rolando fractures, and ulnar collateral ligament injuries. [Review]
    J Hand Surg Am. 2009 May-Jun; 34(5):945-52.Carlsen BT, Moran SL
  • Injuries to the thumb are predominated by fractures of the proximal phalanx, ligamentous injuries about the metacarpophalangeal joint, and metacarpal base fractures. This article will attempt to summarize recent advancements within the realm of thumb trauma, with particular attention to Bennett fractures, Rolando fractures, and ulnar collateral ligament injuries.
  • Management of Rolando fracture by modified dynamic external fixation: a new technique. [Journal Article]
    Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg. 2009 Mar; 13(1):11-5.El-Sharkawy AA, El-Mofty AO, … Asal F
  • Rolando fracture is one of the most difficult fractures facing hand surgeons. It can be described as a Y- or T-shaped fracture line that runs longitudinally through the metaphyseal area, with an intra-articular fracture splitting the metacarpal base fragment into a volar and a dorsal fragment. In this study, we introduce our technique used in the management of 7 cases, which were treated by our d…
  • Traumatic dislocations and instability of the trapeziometacarpal joint of the thumb. [Review]
    Hand Clin. 2006 Aug; 22(3):365-92.Edmunds JO
  • The surgeon treating traumatic injuries to the TMC joint should be aware of the fundamental misconceptions and pervasive axiomatic myths perpetuated in the medical literature: namely that the volar beak ligament is the prime stabilizer, that the dorsal ligament complex plays no significant role in TMC joint function, and that the APL is a deforming force in Bennett fractures. On the contrary, sta…
  • Injuries of the fingers and thumb in the athlete. [Review]
    Clin Sports Med. 2006 Jul; 25(3):527-42, vii-viii.Peterson JJ, Bancroft LW
  • Injuries of the fingers and thumb in the athlete are common. Mallet finger, jersey finger, boutonniere deformity, Bennett and Rolando fractures, and gamekeeper's thumb are just a few of the injuries that can occur in athletes. A thorough understanding of the mechanism of injury, osseous and soft tissue abnormalities, imaging features, and treatment is important in the care of athletes. Prompt and…
  • [Diagnosis and treatment of juvenile osteoporosis]. [Review]
    Arch Pediatr. 2005 May; 12(5):585-93.Cimaz R, Guez S
  • Bone mass is primarily genetically determined, but exogenous factors also play a major role. The prevention of osteoporosis can start from childhood, and optimal achievement of peak bone mass during childhood and adolescence is important in order to minimise future fracture risks. Chronic inflammatory diseases can have a detrimental effect on bone mass, by means of several mechanisms. Different d…
  • The results of operative treatment of fractures of the thumb metacarpal base. [Journal Article]
    Acta Orthop Belg. 2001 Oct; 67(4):368-73.Brüske J, Bednarski M, … Grzeszewski S
  • The results of operative treatment of 21 patients with intraarticular fractures of the thumb metacarpal bone are presented. In 14 patients closed reduction was performed followed by percutaneous fixation with one or two K-wires through the metacarpal shaft to the trapezium. In five delayed cases, in which closed reduction was unsuccessful, open reduction and K-wire pinning was performed. After op…
  • [Fracture-dislocation of the second carpometacarpal joint. Case report and review of the literature]. [Case Reports]
    Chir Main. 2001 Oct; 20(5):397-402.Benoit O, Polvèche G, … Théry D
  • A 26-year-old man was involved in a car crash then he presented an isolated trauma of the hand. We found out a dorsal dislocation of the second carpometacarpal joint with trapezoid fracture and a Rolando fracture. In emergency, closed reduction with percutaneous wires to stabilize, was performed. In the same time, the Rolando fracture was treated by internal fixation (plate). In a second time, af…
