Abstract

Mallet fingers are difficult to treat, especially in surgeons, who need to sterilize their hands continuously and who have constant strains placed on their fingers. We successfully treated a nondominant, fifth-digit, nonbony mallet finger in a surgical resident with a splint method composed of a bent, semitubular, small-fragment plate and Steri-strips (3-M, St. Paul, MN). This splinting method allowed the resident to continue performing surgeries while the injury healed.
