Reduction

Simple transverse fracture of proximal phalanx – Compression plate fixation

Reduction can be obtained by traction and flexion of the metacarpophalangeal joint exerted by the surgeon.
Confirm reduction under image intensification.
Often, these fractures are stable after reduction, in which case, nonoperative treatment is indicated.
