Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Carpometacarpal dislocations are relatively rare injuries. Three cases of carpometacarpal dislocations at different sites are presented. Early detection of these injuries enables immediate closed reduction. Maintenance of the reduction in a plaster cast did not prevent redislocation in one case, which required open reduction and internal fixation with a Kirchner wire. Anatomic reduction is recommended to avoid leaving patients with a weak grip and continuous pain.
