Finger Phalangeal Fracture Deformity Correction

Common injuries that can lead to abnormalities and impact the fingers' alignment and functionality include finger phalangeal fractures. To return to normal finger anatomy and function, remedial procedures could be required when fractures are not properly aligned or if there is severe displacement. The goal of deformity correction is to realign the broken bone pieces, encourage appropriate healing, and enhance hand function.

Finger Phalangeal Fracture Deformity Correction

The type and location of the fracture, the degree of displacement, and the general health of the soft tissues in the area all play a role in determining the precise method for deformity repair.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

The patient will be given anaesthesia preparation before surgery. To reduce the risk of infection, the surgical team will clean and sanitise the surgical site. To gain access to the broken bone fragments, the surgeon will make an incision at the fracture site. The precise fracture pattern and the requirement for exposure will determine the size and placement of the incision. To make sure they are not harmed or impaired, the surgeon will carefully examine the nearby soft tissues, such as tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. The surgeon will execute a fracture reduction, which entails realigning the shattered bone fragments into their proper anatomical position. This may be done manually (closed reduction) or with the use of equipment, such as forceps or clamps. Once the fracture is minimised, the surgeon will employ several fixation procedures to maintain the bone fragments in their repaired location. This may require the use of screws, plates, wires, pins, or a combination thereof. The specific choice of fixation will depend on factors such as the fracture type, location, and stability. If there is any damage to the surrounding soft tissues, such as tendons or ligaments, the surgeon may perform repair or reconstruction procedures as necessary to restore their integrity and function. After the bone fragments are properly aligned and stabilised, the surgeon will close the incision using sutures or staples. A sterile dressing may be put on the surgical site.

Finger Phalangeal Fracture Deformity Correction Recovery:

Physical therapy is an essential component of the healing process and aids in regaining strength, range of motion, and functionality. Although recovery times might differ, it often takes several months for the thumb or fingers to recover fully. You will progressively restore strength and range of motion throughout this time through therapy. It’s crucial to adhere to your surgeon’s instructions and attend all prescribed aftercare appointments.

Finger Phalangeal Fracture Deformity Correction FAQ

How long does it take the finger to heal following surgery to fix a deformity?2023-07-12T15:18:50+01:00

The amount of time it takes to heal can change based on the type of surgery done, the severity of the fracture, and the speed at which each person heals. The healing of the bone often takes a few weeks to a few months. It can take more time to fully recuperate and resume routine activities.


After having surgery to repair a deformity, when can I start moving my finger?2023-07-12T15:19:53+01:00

The specific fracture, the surgery done, and the surgeon’s recommendations will all affect when finger mobility can start. To avoid stiffness, modest range-of-motion exercises may occasionally be started right away after surgery. On the other hand, it’s crucial to adhere to the surgeon’s recommendations regarding mobility limits and gradually resume finger activity.


Will I feel pain during the healing process?2023-08-21T11:40:29+01:00

After deformity correction surgery, some discomfort and swelling are typical. To treat any postoperative discomfort, the surgeon will prescribe the appropriate painkillers. The pain should gradually lessen as the healing process advances. It’s critical to inform your healthcare physician of any severe or chronic pain.


Can many fingers have deformity corrective surgery at the same time?2023-07-12T15:22:21+01:00

If necessary, it is possible to fix deformities in several fingers at once during surgery. The severity of the fractures, the difficulty of the treatment, and the patient’s general condition all play a role in this choice. On a case-by-case basis, the surgeon will choose the best course of action.
