Pearls

Screw Fixation

• Fracture edges are inspected and the optimal position for screw fixation (perpendicular) is selected.

• Anatomic reduction is ideal for maximal compression.

• Ensure the fracture fragment is at least three times the thread diameter of the screw for fixation.

• Long oblique and spiral fracture patterns may be fixed with 1.5-mm screws if the fracture is two to three times diameter of the phalanx.

• Loupe magnification is helpful when using 1.1-or 1.5-mm screws.
