Hand injuries on artificial ski slope

Hand injuries on artificial ski slope

Journal of Hand Surgery 18(6): 712-713

50 consecutive patients with injuries due to skiing on an artificial ski slope were seen in our emergency department over a 16-month period; 76% of these involved the hand or wrist. 52.5% of hand lesions were fractures and only one-third of the first ray injuries were sprains of the ulnar aspect of the MP joint. These data significantly differ from those known for skiing on snow.
