Bennetts fracture

    • Bennetts fracture-dislocation (A very frequently tested topic in PG Medical Entrance)
      • It is an oblique intra-articular fracture of the base of the first metacarpal with subluxation or dislocation of the metacarpal(MCQ)
      • It is sustained as a result of a longitudinal force applied to the thumb. (MCQ)
      • Treatment
        • Accurate reduction and restoration of the smooth joint surface is important to prevent osteoarthritis. (MCQ)
          • This is because, being an intra-articular fracture, if not reduced accurately, it will lead to incongruity of the articular surfaces. (MCQ)
        • Closed reduction and percutaneous K-wire  fixation under an image intensifier, is a good technique. (MCQ)
        • Open reduction and internal fixation with a K-wire or a screw may be necessary in some cases.
      • Complications -Osteoarthritis(MCQ)
        • Excision of the trapezium may be required in particularly painful arthritis cases.
    • Rolando’s fracture(MCQ)
      • This is an extra-articular fracture across the base of the first metacarpal(MCQ)
      • Perfect reduction is not as important as in Bennett’s fracture-dislocation.
      • Treatment is by reduction and immobilisation in a thumb spica for 3 weeks.(MCQ)
    • Boxer’s fracture(MCQ)
      • Fracture through the neck of the metacarpal(MCQ)
      • It  commonly affects the neck of the fifth metacarpal(MCQ)
      • The distal fragment is tilted forwards
      • It is usually sustained when a closed fist hits against a hard object

    Bennett’s Fracture
    A Bennett fracture is a fracture-dislocation of the 1st carpometacarpal (CMC) joint (between the metacarpal and the carpal bones at the wrist). There is a fracture of the base of the metatarsal (the bone from the wrist to the thumb), as well as a subluxation of the joint.
    This is a serious injury which if not treated correctly can cause permanent disability, with particular problems when bringing the thumb across the palm of the hand and pinching with the index or middle fingers.
    The most common cause of a Bennett fracture is a punch with a clenched fist. It is also common in Football goal keepers and Rugby or American Football players.
    Intraarticular Fracture Base of Thumb Metacarpal Surgery by Dr. Thomas Trumble
    A distal radius fracture that extends into the joint (articular) surface is the most severe pattern of these injuries. In these cases, traumatic arthritis can rapidly develop if the joint surface is not realigned and stabilized. Specially contoured plates are used to align the articular surface. With successful treatment of intraarticular distal radius fractures, patients can avoid traumatic arthritis and restore function with good range of motion and pain relief.

    Metacarpal Fracture/Boxers Fracture – Cast and Pin Removal
    I broke the 5th Metacarpal Biking.. This is also known as a boxers fracture.
    Originally the bone moved 35 degrees making it so i didnt have to get pins but surley enough it moved making me get pins in my metacarpal. They put me to sleep during the surgery and woke me up a hour later. Now that i have got my pins out it feels like it is still broke, i am unable to move it upward but surely enough im sure it will get back into its original position..
