Reconstruction of extensive traumatic bone and soft tissue deficits in the hand often presents a significant challenge. We present a case of a gunshot wound managed with a resourceful "vascularized spare parts" reconstruction in which a single compromised digit provided two separate vascularized tissue transfers. A rarely reported pedicled phalanx restored osseous stability, a digital fillet flap achieved soft tissue coverage, and the flexor tendons reanimated the hand. An excellent functional and cosmetic result was obtained and the patient was able to return to manual labor within six months of injury...

INTRODUCTION: The treatment of the flexor tendon adhesions following phalanx and metacarpal fractures, in closed or open injuries, is a great challenge for the hand surgeon. The outcomes are often poor, because of the severity of the lesion and the aggressiveness of the surgical procedure of the secondary tenolysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors describe the technical findings and the results of a new mini-invasive tenolysis in order to treat the adhesions in zone 1 and 2 of the fingers, following phalangeal and metacarpal fractures...

The field of hand surgery is constantly evolving to meet the challenges of repairing intricate anatomical structures with limited availability of donor tissue. The past 10 years have seen an exponential growth in tissue engineering, which has broadened the perspectives of tackling these age-old problems. Various fabrication techniques such as melt electrospinning and fused deposition modelling have been employed to synthesize 3-dimensional bioscaffolds that can be used to replace lost tissue. These bioscaffolds with strategic biomimicry have been shown to allow for integrative and functional repair of tissue injuries...

Tendon injuries are encountered after major and minor hand trauma. Despite meticulous repair technique, adhesion formation can occur, limiting recovery. Although a great deal of progress has been made toward understanding the mechanism of tendon healing and adhesions, clinically applicable solutions to prevent adhesions remain elusive. The goal of this paper is to review the most recent literature relating to the tendon healing and adhesion prevention.

Medical treatment including lifestyle and dietary modifications and drug therapy remains the mainstay of treatment for gouty arthritis of the hand and wrist. Without proper and timely treatment, tophi develop approximately 10 years after the onset of the disease. Open surgery for tophaceous gout is associated with a relatively high rate of complications particularly related to the surgical wound and overlying skin necrosis. Intralesional shaving of the tophi through small incisions has been reported and has the advantage of fewer wound complications...

BACKGROUND: The peripheral nerve injuries are devastating for the patient; the classic reconstructive options are the Nerve Graft and Tendon Transfers. Lately the Nerve Transfers are being used more and more broadly. They are an excellent option on early injuries and when the motor plate is still alive. The advantages are numerous, because the functional recovery is much better. METHODS AND RESULTS: We report the case of a patient who sustained and injury on the median and ulnar nerve, so the EDQ and ECU branches were used to restore the Ulnar Intrinsic Function...

Rock climbing, whether practiced in nature on cliffs and boulders or indoors on walls made of resin and wood, has gained tremendous popularity in recent decades. More people are exposed to injuries associated with the unique biomechanical forces of rock climbing. A series of repetitive high torque movements of the upper limbs are needed to ascend a wall or rockface. These movements subject the hand and wrist to large forces, potentially resulting in ligament and tendon sprains or rupture and even bone fracture...

REVIEW
Megan Conti Mica, Pieter Caekebeke, Roger van Riet
Chronic posterolateral rotatory instability (PLRI) is the most common form of chronic elbow instability.PLRI usually occurs from a fall on the outstretched hand. On impact, the radial head and ulna rotate externally coupled with valgus displacement of the forearm. This leads to posterior displacement of the radial head relative to the capitellum, thus causing disruption of some or all of the lateral-sided stabilisers.PLRI is mainly a clinical diagnosis with a history of instability, clicking and lateral-sided pain, with a positive clinical examination including the pivot-shift test, push-up, chair and tabletop test...
