spiral fracture of proximal phalanx , right little finger
Abou 8 years ago I broke this bone and it was also diagnosed with an osteochondroma in this bone. They suggested a bone graft to the finger but I declined. I think I broke it again in 2005 but just strapped it up myself.

I have now broken it again, Friday evening and have a spiral fracture with some angulation. It is currently in a backslab cast awaiting appointment at the trauma clinic.

It is my dominant hand and as I am a nail artist my hand is very important to me.

I was just wondering what the outcome might be.

Thanks.

Just as an update, the finger is now immobilised for 6 weeks to allow the fracture to heal. I have an appointment to see the plastic surgery hand consultant on 25th Feb. I will need to have an operation due to the enchondroma, the bone is seriously deformed and swolen. Will have more information on 25th.
