Multiple carpometacarpal dislocation, radius fracture concomitant carpal lesions, open reduction internal fixation, metacarpal bones
Incorrect or delayed diagnosis and treatment of the carpometacarpal fracture-dislocations is often associated with poor prognosis. We present a rare case of unusual pattern of injury, involving dorsal dislocation of four ulnar carpometacarpal joints, associated with fracture of the trapezium, a burst fracture of the trapezoid bone and an extra-articular fracture of the third distal of the radius.
The first surgical intervention was followed by unsatisfactory results, confirmed by the CT scans. A second surgery followed and an open reduction and pinning with K wires performed. Post-operative follow up lasting for nine months revealed a very good surgical outcome.
