Managing thumb volar plate attenuation in children: a systematic review and case series.
Nikkhah D., Rodrigues J., DeJager L.
Traumatic metacarpophalangeal joint (MCPJ) volar plate attenuations are often managed non-operatively in adults. However, the management of these situations in children is a less commonly encountered challenge. We present a systematic review of the evidence describing the management of these injuries in the paediatric population. We also present our experience of managing painful thumb MCPJ volar plate attenuation in three children who presented to a single UK hand unit.
