Metacarpal Fractures

Abstract

Metacarpal fractures are amongst the most common hand injuries. Treatment can range from splinting/casting, to closed reduction and percutaneous pinning, to open reduction and internal fixation depending on the location and severity of the injury. While acceptable angulation of metacarpal fractures varies based on location, no amount of rotational deformity may be accepted.
