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

No

Cuts
The extensor tendon is on the dorsal or top side. A volar injury is likely to. Injure a flexor tendon or nerve. See a hand surgeon.

Dr. Barry Press answered:

should I do surgery of subtle volar fracture through proximal base of proximal phalanx of thumb with volary distraction of avulsed fracture fragment?

See a hand surgeon

Fingers
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.

See Plastic surgeon

There are many variations or presentations of a duplicated digit, with some requiring minimal surgery to others requiring fairly complex reconstruction to improve the function of the hand.Your child's Hand/Plastic surgeon will be able to let you know the potential risks, benefits and limitations of the proposed surgery. In almost all cases function primarily and aesthetics secondarily are improved

Dr. James L. Chen answered:

How do I fix a thumb injury?

Depends on injury

Thumb_injury
If you injured your thumb you should be evaluated by a physician. Xrays should be ordered to rule out a fracture. If it is a dislocation then wearing a splint will be necessary. If it is a sprain it depends which ligament is sprained or torn because sometimes surgery is required. Better to get evaluated by an MD for hand injuries rather than just wait to see if it heals on its own.

Did you stick it in your eye? Sorry I couldn't resist. Seriously though there is no connection. You may want to get your vision checked.

Dr. Kirt Kimball answered:

What is a common Skiiers thumb injury?

Acute game-keepers

Joints
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.
