What are long term effects that can come up from a spiral fracture in your hand?

Surgery - Plastics

In brief: Depends on...

How well the fracture is reduced and which bone is involved.
For example, a spiral fracture of a metacarpal might not cause much deformity when the fingers are extended, but may cause the injured finger to cross its neighbor upon making a fist. Other deformities are possible. See a hand surgeon to assure the best healing and to minimize complications.
