1 Torus Fracture Impaction injury of childhood. Primarily affects developing metaphyseal bone. Compression fracture due to porous nature of the bone.

2 Distal Radius Fracture Obtain true AP and Lateral X-rays. Frequent F/U. Not true Buckle fracture therefore can displace.

3 Flexor Profundus Avulsion Usually pure avulsion from distal phalanx. High index of suspicion, frequently missed. Ring finger most common.

4 Finger Injuries Profundus avulsion Salter II fracture Subungual hematoma (mallet fx)

5 Flexor Profundus Avulsion Seen in athletics. Football player reaching and grabbing a jersey to make the tackle. Early repair required to achieve a good result. Inability to flex the DIP joint. Tenderness at PIP joint. Tendon can retract into the palm. Need good quality lateral & oblique X-ray.

6 Salter II Fracture Proximal Phalanx Most common physeal fx. Small finger most common. Reduce if needed and splinted 3-4 weeks ulnar gutter. AVN Salter II

7 Subungual Hematoma Think fracture and nail bed laceration

8 Mallet Finger Injury

9 Prevention One person at a time

10 Prevention Proper fitting safety equipment for the specific sport. Proper fitting safety equipment for the specific sport.

11 The End
