Abstract

Phalangeal fractures are common in all ages. Stable, extra-articular fractures can be treated non-operatively by closed reduction and buddy taping, while surgical fixation should be considered for unstable and displaced extra-articular fractures and most intra-articular fractures. The treatment should aim at early, active mobilisation in order to achieve the optimal functional outcome. Since intra-articular frac-tures, proximal interphalangeal joint fracture dislocations, open fractures and certain paediatric fractures can lead to poor functional outcome, referral to a hand surgeon is recommended.
