Abstract provided by Publisher
Dislocation of the second metacarpophalangeal joint is a rare injury and despite trivial symptoms generally requires operative treatment. We present a case of complex dislocation treated operatively from a volar approach. This approach allows good visualization and repair of the volar plate. K-wire stabilization for 3 weeks was enough to avoid joint instability and did not limit the range of motion.
