Proximal Inter-Phalangeal Joint Injury

About this event

The ability to flex and extend the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint is crucial for adequate grip strength. Estimates show that the PIP joint accounts for approximately 85% of the motion required in functional grip due to its shape as a hing joint and its limited tolerance to angular, axial, and rotational stress, it is considered one of the most susceptible joints to injury.

Proximal interphalangeal joint injuries are one of the most common injuries of the hand. The severity of injury can vary from a minor sprain to a complex intra-articular fracture. Due to the complex anatomy of the joint, complications may occur even after an appropriate treatment.

In this presentation, Prof. Binu Thomas will provide a comprehensive review on how to manage acute proximal interphalangeal joint injury along with management of complications and imparts practical points to help prevent further complications after PIP joint injury.
