BACKGROUND: Extension block pinning is a simple and reliable technique for mallet fractures, but poor results are sometimes obtained. The predictors of postoperative range of motion after extension block pinning of mallet fingers were investigated. METHODS: The outcomes for postoperative active motion of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint, such as flexion angle, extension loss, and total range of motion, were examined. Predictors such as age, gender, finger, fragment size, joint subluxation, the time from injury to operation, procedure, fixation angle, the time from operation to wire removal, and joint step-off were evaluated statistically...

Mallet finger is a common injury involving the extensor mechanism of the finger. It presents as an inability to extend the distal phalanx of the digit. In the right clinical setting, a thorough examination should be performed and supplemented by adequate radiographs. The mechanism of injury is usually a direct blow to an extended finger causing hyperflexion or hyperextension of the distal phalanx. Common occurrences are in young adults during sporting activities or in minor falls or trauma in osteoporotic individuals...

INTRODUCTION: Extension-block pinning represents a simple and reliable surgical technique. Although this procedure is commonly performed successfully, some patients develop postoperative extension loss. To date, the relationship between extension-block Kirschner wire (K-wire) insertion angle and postoperative extension loss in mallet finger fracture remains unclear. HYPOTHESIS: We aimed to clarify this relationship and further evaluate how various operative and non-operative factors affect postoperative extension loss after extension-block pinning for mallet finger fracture...

A mallet finger is a flexion deformity of a finger at the distal interphalangeal joint due to an injury of the extensor mechanism at the base of the distal phalanx. Most common in middle-aged men, injuries in the pediatric population are less common and rare in toddlers. We describe a case of missed mallet finger and its subsequent treatment in a female toddler.

Avulsion fractures can pose technical difficulties for surgical fixation. The fragments are often small and around finger joints with access being difficult due to attachment of ligaments or tendons. Traditionally, these have been treated using K wires, lag screws, or pullout sutures.Hook plates were originally described for operative management of mallet fractures. We have been using hook plates in our unit for over 10 years. However, over the years, we have extended their use to other avulsion fractures in the hand such as proximal interphalangeal joint fracture dislocations, central slip avulsions, flexor digitorum profundus avulsions and collateral ligament avulsions...

T Apard, G Candelier
The central slip tenotomy described by Fowler is an effective option for treating chronic mallet finger in order to avoid swan neck deformity of the finger. In a prospective study of 14 cases (13 failures of conservative treatment and one case of untreated mallet finger), we performed percutaneous ultrasound-guided central slip tenotomy with a 19 G needle using the wide-awake local anesthesia and no tourniquet (WALANT) technique. The mean extensor lag before surgery was 28° (range 20°-40°) and three patients had a swan neck deformity...

A 39-year-old man injured his left little finger and was diagnosed with chronic tendon mallet with -50° of extension and 80° of flexion at the DIP joint. We performed an anatomical reconstruction of the terminal tendon and both lateral bands with divided palmaris longus tendon grafting. Postoperative range of motion at the DIP joint improved to -5° of extension with no flexion loss. We demonstrated a novel surgical technique for chronic tendon mallet injury that might represent a useful choice for the treatment of chronic mallet finger injury...

A swan neck deformity (SND) can be well tolerated for a long time, until the appearance of a disabling "snapping finger". In its most advanced condition, the other hand is needed to initiate finger flexion. We propose a technique of extra-articular, subcutaneous ligament reconstruction with an "inverted king post-truss" configuration use in roofs and to reinforce railway bridges. An artificial ligament (MaxBraid™ polyethylene surgical suture, 5 metric, Biomet) makes a figure of eight between transosseous tunnels in the proximal and middle phalanges, crossing over top of the A3 pulley...

In this research, the nonlinear elastic behavior of human extensor apparatus was investigated. To this goal, firstly the best material parameters of hyperelastic strain energy density functions consisting of the Mooney-Rivlin, Ogden, invariants, and general exponential models were derived for the simple tension experimental data. Due to the significance of stress response in other deformation modes of nonlinear models, the calculated parameters were used to study the pure shear and balance biaxial tension behavior of the extensor apparatus...
