Postoperative management of carpometacarpal joint fracture dislocation of the hand: A case report

T Bell | SJ Chinchalkar | K Faber

Injury to the carpometacarpal joints is rare. The strong ligamentous attachments and carpal bone alignment readily resist displacement. To the authors’ knowledge, there are no studies evaluating postoperative recovery regimens of carpometacarpal fracture dislocations. The present study describes a postoperative hand therapy regimen that used a novel carpometacarpal brace permitting early mobilization.
