Abstract

This article reports a novel intraoperative technique for the reduction of angulated metacarpal neck fractures undergoing retrograde headless intramedullary screw fixation. This technique is a useful reduction maneuver, especially for hand surgeons operating without a first assistant, because it eliminates the need to hold manual reduction during implant placement.
