TurnKey Case Study 1

DS, 45 year old male with an acute fracture of his left ring finger PIP joint. His pre-op photo shows fracture of the base of the middle phalanx involving ~50% of the joint surface. The middle phalanx is subluxed.
A TurnKey FCS was applied five days post injury.
We do not have any x-rays with the device on.
The TurnKey FCS was worn for six weeks. His active ROM at 2.5 months post device application was 15 to 85 degrees. He had a stable joint with a concentric reduction of the joint with a mild dye punch just volar to the mid axis of the base of the middle phalanx. He had minimal swelling and no pain.
