Abstract

Our data show that age, finger topography, and injury mechanism are factors that are independently associated with the final prognosis of these lesions. This information enables us to anticipate the range of finger mobility to be expected and to inform patients in advance of their possible post-operation prognosis. Level of Evidence: Level III, risk / prognostic study
