  • StatPearls: Phalanx Fracture [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Kee Clarence C Ochsner LSU Shreveport Massey Patrick P LSU Health BOOK
  • Phalangeal fractures of the hand are a common injury that presents to the emergency department and clinic. Injuries can occur at the proximal, middle, or distal phalanx. For the vast majority of phalanx fractures, an acceptable reduction is manageable with non-operative treatment. Early intervention is vital to allow healing and return of function. Anatomy The proximal and middle phalanges of the…
  • The proximal interphalangeal joint: arthritis and deformity. [Review]
    EFORT Open Rev 2019; 4(6):254-262Herren D
  • Finger joints are of the most common site of osteoarthritis and include the DIP, PIP and the thumb saddle joint.Joint arthroplasty provides the best functional outcome for painful destroyed PIP joints, including the index finger.Adequate bone stock and functional tendons are required for a successful PIP joint replacementFixed swan-neck and boutonnière deformity are better served with PIP arthrod…
  • Dorsal Dupuytren's disease: a systematic review of published cases and treatment options. [Journal Article]
    J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019; 44(9):963-971Carloni R, Gandolfi S, … Auquit-Auckbur I
  • Dorsal lesions in Dupuytren's disease are rare and data concerning their epidemiology and management are sparse. We conducted a systematic review to summarize reported cases of dorsal Dupuytren's disease. Pubmed, Cochrane, and Embase databases were searched from 1893 to 2018, and 17 articles were selected (525 patients). The male to female ratio was 3.8:1. The dorsal disease was bilateral in 225 …
  • Management of Acute Extensor Tendon Injuries. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg 2019; 46(3):383-391Yoon AP, Chung KC
  • Thin soft tissue covering extensor tendons make them prone to injury. The extensor mechanism achieves a delicate balance with the flexor system. Inappropriate management in the acute setting can lead to long-term deformity and dysfunction. Acute extensor tendon injuries are usually managed with splinting and/or primary repair of the tendon. In cases of tendon length loss, tendon graft or flap may…
  • Managing Swan Neck and Boutonniere Deformities. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg 2019; 46(3):329-337Elzinga K, Chung KC
  • Acute and chronic injuries to the finger extensor mechanism can result in swan neck and boutonniere deformities. Loss of coordination between the multiple, specialized components of the extensor mechanism results in tendon imbalances leading to altered interphalangeal joint flexion and extension forces. Treatments include corrective splinting and operative interventions. Swan neck deformities are…
  • StatPearls: Swan-Neck Deformity [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Lane Robert R Michigan State Un - Mclaren Oakland Nallamothu Shivajee V. SV Mclaren Oakland/Michigan State Un BOOK
  • Swan neck deformity is characterized by proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint hyperextension and flexion of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint. There is also reciprocal flexion noted of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint. This is a result of an imbalance of the extensor mechanism of the digit. The imbalance could be due to a significant laceration or stretching of the extrinsic tendon forces …
