The results of treatment of severe injuries to the proximal interphalangeal joint are unsatisfactory. The methods of joint reconstruction are discussed, including fusion, implant arthroplasty, perichondrial grafting and vascularized joint transfer. A patient is presented with a severe crush...
A case of dislocation of the hamate is reported. The literature is reviewed, the mechanism of injury discussed and results of treatment described.
A large aponeurotic fibroma situated on the dorsum of the hand of a fourteen-year-old Nigerian male is reported. Out of forty-three juvenile aponeurotic fibromata of the hand documented in the literature, only two cases occurred on the dorsum.

We describe the vascularised transfer of a second metatarsophalangeal joint to the hand to correct a congenital deformity in a thirteen-year-old boy. Technical refinements are described, allowing inversion of the joint to the optimal position for subsequent mobility and retention of a large...
The nutrient pathways to the extensor tendon beneath the extensor retinaculum of young adult monkeys was investigated using hydrogen as tracer material. The results indicate that diffusion from the synovium is a more significant nutrient pathway than vascular perfusion from either the mesotendon...
