5th Metacarpal Fracture with angulation deformity

Young man with a fracture of the 5th finger metacarpal bone with angulated deformity.

He was treated without surgery. His fracture was straightened as best as possible under local anaesthetic in my rooms and then a cast was placed on the hand for 6 weeks. Post removal of the splint he has some stiffness of finger movement but good alignment of the little finger in comparison to the good hand.

*Not all fractures need surgery, especially in the hand.
