TREATMENT OF ACUTE TENDINOUS MALLET FINGER IN ATHLETES

Ball sports are the most frequent cause of sport injuries and in the 60% they affect hands leading to tendon lesions or ruptures. Mallet finger is a traumatic lesion of the zone I of the extensor tendon with tendon rupture at the base of the distal phalanx. In our study, we evaluated a series of 25 consecutive athletes aged 20 to 35 admitted for acute tendinous mallet finger. They underwent open surgery. We demonstrated that tendon internal suture with Kirschner wire arthrodesis of the Distal Interphalangeal Joint could be considered to be a safe and effective method to treat acute mallet finger.
