CONCLUSIONS: The current study demonstrated good results of the PRTS for unstable intra-articular fractures of the PIP joint. Furthermore, satisfactory results were obtained in cases of an incomplete amputation at the PIP joint, a pathological fracture due to bone tumor, and an osteochondral defect due to comminuted fracture of the proximal phalangeal head, where costal osteochondral bone was transplanted. From this study, the PRTS is recommended as a useful treatment because it is widely effective for various unstable fractures of the PIP joint. PMID: 30987517 [PubMed - in process]
