Case Report: A Case of Bony Mallet Finger Managed by Delta Frame

Dr. Nithin K M [10] | Dr. Neeraj R Shetty [10]

Abstract: Mallet finger is the term usually applied to extensor avulsion fractures. However, this entity may also be caused by distal extensor tendon ruptures. Either one result in an inability to extend the DIP joint. This injury results in the inability to extend the distal phalanx. The treatment remains controversial. In general, it is guided by the amount of articular surface involved in the fracture. We have presented a report of 32 year old female with bony mallet injury being treated with closed reduction and delta frame application. The patient had good bony union and functional outcome after 6 weeks.
