Application of a trans-web approach to plating technique for an extra-articular fracture of the proximal phalanx



Application of a trans-web approach to plating technique for an extra-articular fracture of the proximal phalanx



Hand Surgery 18(1): 129-131



We report the case of an extra-articular fracture at the base of the proximal phalanx of the ring finger treated by plate and screw fixation using a modified trans-web approach. The combination of trans-web and mid-lateral approach provided a wide operative field and adequate visualization without marked damage to the soft tissues, and the operative outcome was excellent.
