Reverse Hemi-Hamate Autograft for Volar Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Fracture-Dislocations

J Hand Surg Am. 2023 Sep;48(9):956.e1-956.e6. doi: 10.1016/j.jhsa.2023.01.009. Epub 2023 Jul 29.


Volar proximal interphalangeal joint fracture-dislocations are rare injuries. Treatment is challenging when they are not identified acutely, with poor outcomes reported. We report a surgical technique to treat chronic volar proximal interphalangeal joint fracture-dislocations: a reverse hemi-hamate autograft.

Keywords: Finger fracture dislocations; PIP fracture dislocations; hemi-hamate; surgical technique.
