Figure 1432000s

Figure Legend: Rotational malalignment of metacarpal fractures may not be apparent with the fingers in extension. The rotation of this patient's ring and small finger malunions is much less obvious with his fingers extended (left) than with attempted full flexion (right). Reduction of rotational malalignment should be checked in the acute setting by placing the fingers in full flexion.
