Proximal phalanx - Oblique head fracture

back to Hand overview


For proximal fractures, make a skin incision from B to C. For further exposure the incision can be extended to A.

Midaxial to the proximal phalanx

The midaxial approach is indicated for oblique, spiral, comminuted, or transverse fractures, of the diaphysis and metaphysis.
