Avulsion Fracture and Ligament Damage of the Right Thumb with Surgical Repairs

This stock medical exhibit illustrates surgical repair of an avulsion fracture and ligament damage of the right thumb using seven images. The first three images use lateral views of the right thumb to present the post-accident conditions, which consist of avulsion fracture of the thumb extending into the joint space and detachment of the collateral ligament. Labels indicate the relevant anatomy including the distal phalanx, collateral ligament, proximal phalanx, and metacarpal bone. The next images shows the two inch incision on the radial side of the thumb. Next, the removal of the avulsed bone fragment is depicted. Then, the placement of drill holes in the bone to promote vascularization is shown. Lastly, the post-operative condition, including the suturing of the collateral ligaments, is presented.
