Abstract

Proper identification and management of traumatic hand and wrist injuries is critical to preventing loss of function, nerve damage, joint instability, persistent pain, and delay in indicated surgery. This article uses case studies to help clinicians make accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. Physical examination findings, radiograph results, and treatment plans are reviewed for four traumatic hand and wrist fractures or dislocations.
