Author information

Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery Clinics, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio.


Despite the best of treatments, problems and complications may be inherent in the fracture, depending on the nature of its severity. For that reason, patients should be followed for a minimum of 2 years after injury and treatment to assess the result and rule out a degenerative processes. A careful, thoughtful analysis at the time of presentation using a descriptive classification system that provides guidance for therapeutic intervention followed by meticulous execution of the mode of treatment employed, regular follow-up care, and rehabilitation will provide the surgeon with a means to treat these common yet vexing problems in an effective way while minimizing complications.
