Fracture of distal radius with first carpo-metacarpal joint subluxation: A rare concomitant injury


Ganesh Singh Dharmshaktu

Carpo-metacarpal joint injuries are less common patterns of hand trauma. Most of the dislocations are fracture dislocations and pure dislocation of thumb CMC joint is rare. The dorsal dislocation is commoner form and volar pure dislocation is very uncommon pattern. Association of this injury with distal radius fracture is very rare. Only a single case report has been reported with thumb CMC joint dislocation associated with ipsilateral distal radius fracture. We hereby report a case of volar thumb CMC joint subluxation with similar associated injury appropriately managed.
