The fixation of a distally ruptured ulnar collateral ligament of the MP 1 (Metacarpophalangeal) joint without a portion of ligament which can be sutured or a small bony fragment can be accomplished with a variety of methods, most of which require drillholes through borth cortices and a counter incision as well as the removal of the material at a second stage (1, 11, 13, 15). The Mitek bone mini anchor (Ethicon-Mitek®) proved to be a reliable and quick alternative (10, 12, 16, 18, 19). It was successfully used in eleven patients with excellent stability of the reconstructed joint.
