A comparative cadaveric biomechanical analysis of the differences between dynamic external traction devices for PIP joint fracture dislocation

18 April 2018 | Stephanie Thibaudeau, Julian Diaz-Abele, Mario Luc
No study in the literature has compared different external distractors for proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) injury. We compared an elastic based device described by Suzuki et al. to a 2-pin model described by Hynes and Giddins in non-injured cadaveric fingers.
