Arthroscopic Management of Bennett Fracture

Jason Solomon, Randall W Culp
Hand Clinics 2017, 33 (4): 787-794
Bennett fracture is the most common fracture of the thumb. Choosing the appropriate approach to fracture fixation requires a thorough knowledge of the anatomy surrounding the first carpometacarpal joint, which is necessary to prevent injury to local sensory nerves and tendons. Although no study has shown superior outcomes compared with open reduction internal fixation and fluoroscopically guided closed reduction and percutaneous pinning, arthroscopic-assisted fixation allows for debridement of the carpometacarpal joint, direct visualization of the articular surface during reduction, and has minimal morbidity and associated complications.
