Finger Injuries in Children

Little kids often get their fingers stuck in doors, gym equipment or jammed in furniture. Sometimes these injuries may result in fractures of growing bones. As in this case were a little girl got her finger caught under a coffee table.

The Xrays show a fracture of the distal phalanx of the finger. The photograph shows an open wound of the nail bed. This constitutes an injury that needs to be cleaned in the operating room and the nailbed stitched. The finger will then be dressed and splinted for a couple of weeks. The importance of these injuries relates to an open injury which may if left untreated result in an infection risk to the bone and more importantly the growth plate.
