Simple surgery to improve flexion deficit resulting from mal-union of fracture neck of the proximal phalanx - a case report



Simple surgery to improve flexion deficit resulting from mal-union of fracture neck of the proximal phalanx - a case report



Hand Surgery 19(1): 123-125



Mal-union of the proximal phalanx can result in stiffness and decreased grip strength. Corrective osteotomy is precarious, especially for mal-union of the neck, as complications like non-union and avascular necrosis may occur. We describe a simple technique of subcondylar fossa reconstruction for mal-union of the proximal phalanx to overcome these problems.
