PURPOSE Fixation countersunk beneath the articular surface is well accepted for periarticular fractures. Limited open intramedullary headless compression screw (HCS) fixation offers clinical advantages over Kirschner wire and open techniques. We used quantitative 3-dimensional computed tomography to assess the articular starting point, surface area, and subchondral volumes used during HCS fixation of metacarpal neck fractures. METHODS We simulated retrograde intramedullary insertion of 2.4… CONTINUE READING
