Symptoms of phalanx fractures

Typical symptoms: local swelling, pain, pain of movement and tenderness of the phalanx, limited flexion and extension of the fingers, etc.

Related symptoms: Joint stiffness, stiffness, pain, ring finger pain of unknown cause, joint pain

1. Symptoms

The position of the phalanx is superficial. After the injury, in addition to obvious pain, swelling, tenderness and limited mobility, obvious deformities are visible. For suspicious fractures, X-rays can be taken to confirm the diagnosis. The treatment of phalangeal fractures often fails to attract high attention. It is often malunion or nonunion due to poor alignment or weak fixation, and often due to improper fixation or too long fixation, which results in joint capsule and collateral ligament contractures. Joint stiffness; especially near joints or through joint fractures, often lead to joint stiffness, which seriously affects the function of the fingers.

2. Diagnosis

The diagnosis can be made based on medical history, clinical manifestations and X-ray examination.
