  • 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. [Review]
    J Hand Surg Am 2019; 44(4):331-334Caldwell 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; 77(6):679-695Marrani 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; 33(1):161-173Kadow 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; 35(5):335-340Giesen 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; 119(12):978-985Mehling 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; 8(2):80-5Mumtaz 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.
