Intra-articular fractures of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint are commonly treated with dynamic external fixation. Most commonly used is the Suzuki modification of the pins and rubber traction system (PRTS). There are a few other modifications of the PRTS external fixators. We present an alternative pin external fixator that is simple and effective.

Intra-articular glenoid fracture is rare injury and conservatively treated significantly displaced intra-articular glenoid fractures have been found to have poor functional outcomes, and thus most are...
Expanding the Indications for Mini Plates in the Orthopedic Trauma Scenario: A Useful Alternative Technique for Maintaining Provisional Reduction and Improving Stability for Complex Periarticular Fracture Fixation of the Upper Limbs.
The use of mini plates as a reduction tool is an elegant technique for temporary stabilization of multifragmentary fractures. For some complex periarticular fractures with severe comminution close to ...
To conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing physical function and complications following DIATF surgery with external fixation (EF) or open reduction internal fixation (ORIF).
The objective of this study (ClinicalTrials.gov ID: NCT03031015) is to compare the treatments of hand proximal phalanx shaft fractures with external-fixation technique using the combination of K-wires...
To report the clinical efficacy of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) assisted by medial distraction for intra-articular calcaneus fractures. From September 2010 to November 2013, 151 patient...
Open reduction and internal fixation of intra-articular distal radius fractures leads to better functional outcomes the first 6 months compared to non-operative treatment. However, some pa...
There is no consensus about the best treatment for patients with displaced complete articular distal radius fractures (AO type C fractures). Despite this lack of consensus and the lack of ...
Promising results have been reported after volar locked plating of unstable dorsally displaced fractures of the distal radius. It offers stable fixation and early mobilization. The investi...
Randomized controlled trial comparing a technique for buried intramedullary k-wire fixation to plate and screw fixation for unstable extra-articular metacarpal fractures.
Distal radius fractures are treated surgically if severely displaced. This study aims to investigate the outcome after surgery. The investigators will randomize patients to either external...
A bone fixation technique using an external fixator (FIXATORS, EXTERNAL) for lengthening limbs, correcting pseudarthroses and other deformities, and assisting the healing of otherwise hopeless traumatic or pathological fractures and infections, such as chronic osteomyelitis. The method was devised by the Russian orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992). (From Bull Hosp Jt Dis 1992 Summer;52(1):1)
Fractures of the articular surface of a bone.
Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis. Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.
Fractures in which the break in bone is not accompanied by an external wound.
Fractures in which there is an external wound communicating with the break of the bone.
