Author(s): Ganesh Singh Dharmshaktu
Abstract: The musculoskeletal injuries of hand require meticulous handling and appropriate intervention for optimal outcome. The open metacarpo-phalangeal (MCP) dislocations are rare injuries with high dependence on early adequate management and early rehabilitation to ensure good function and dexterity. The delicate soft tissue handling and adherence to principles of antisepsis prove instrumental in standard treatment protocol. The MCP dislocations have been studied and reported extensively with other associated injuries or in isolation. The presented report underlines a rare occurrence of simultaneous three MCP dislocations in a hand with an open palmar wound managed accordingly with satisfactory outcome.
