Abstract

Although a patient with polyfractures of the hand has multiple injuries, they are at least localized to one area. The poly traumatized patient has one or more fractures of the hand or wrist in association with multiple fractures or other multiple injuries. When such a patient has one or more serious fractures ofthe hand or wrist, open reduction and internal fixation can be advantageous provided it does not put the patient at any additional risk for his life and provided it does not interfere with any other priorities of treatment.
