Volar Plate Injury Thumb
Could a deep cut on the volar side of the thumb cut the extensor tendon while leaving the flexor tendon intact?

See a hand surgeon: Fractures through joint surfaces are generally more problematic than those outside of joints. Depending on a number of factors, they may predispose to the onset of early arthritis in the joint if the surface is not reconstructed accurately. I would see a hand surgeon to evaluate the particulars of your case. Good luck. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

See your doctor if you have any concerns. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Acute game-keepers: It is a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament of the metacarpal-phalangeal joint of the thumb. It is caused by falling on your hand with the thumb outstretched. The ski pole strap and/or hard plastic molded pole grips capture the thumb and predispose to this injury. You should only use ski pole straps to hand them on a nail in the garage. Yes you may drop a pole but that is an easier recovery. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
