PIP Joint Fracture DislocationsVolar Plate Arthroplasty

PIP Joint Fracture Dislocations: Volar Plate Arthroplasty [Volar plate arthroplasty (VPA) is a treatment option for comminuted and unstable dorsal fracture-dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIP). The volar plate is reattached to the volar edge of the remaining articular surface in order to provide a restraint to dorsal subluxation and a smooth surface for articulation with the head of the proximal phalanx.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png
