Diagnosing rupture of the radial collateral ligament (RCL) of the finger metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints is difficult. The aim of this cadaver study was to validate a rotational test for the MCP after RCL transection. With the MCP and proximal interphalangeal joints in flexion, rotation along the axis of the proximal phalanx was applied through an extended(More)
The goal of this study was to compare the advantages and disadvantages of horizontal versus vertical traction by reviewing a small series of metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint arthroscopy in the fingers other than the thumb. Our series included eight patients operated with traction placed along the axis of the operated finger. In four cases, traction was(More)
Background Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using a volar locking plate is a common method for treating displaced distal radius fractures. There is, however, the risk of extensor tendon rupture due to protrusion of the screw tips past the dorsal cortex, which cannot always be adequately seen on a lateral fluoroscopic view. We therefore wished to(More)
