Ali Towfik Al-alfy, Waleed Mohammed Nafea, Basha Ahmed Basha Alkhadri, Ahmed Mashhour Gaber
Metacarpal fractures comprise between 18–44 % of all hand fractures. Non-thumb metacarpals account for around 88 % of all metacarpal fractures, with the fifth finger most commonly involved. The majority of metacarpal fractures are isolated injuries, which are simple, closed, and stable. While many metacarpal fractures do well without surgery, there is a paucity of literature and persistent controversy to guide the treating physician on the best treatment algorithm. The purpose of this article is to review different treatment methods of metacarpal fractures.
