This comprehensive study explores the various aspects of metacarpal fractures, a prevalent condition in hand injuries. We delve into the anatomy of the metacarpals, elucidating how their structural characteristics influence fracture mechanics and treatment options. Special attention is given to the diverse types of fractures, particularly the differing tolerances for angular, shortening, and rotational deformities. The manuscript extensively reviews conservative treatment approaches, emphasizing the efficacy of non- surgical methods like modified braces and active mobilization techniques. Additionally, we provide a nuanced understanding of specific fracture types, such as neck fractures, highlighting their unique healing dynamics. This research offers valuable insights for orthopedic and plastic surgery practitioners, advancing the understanding and management of metacarpal fractures

Abstract

This comprehensive study explores the various aspects of metacarpal fractures, a prevalent condition in hand injuries. We delve into the anatomy of the metacarpals, elucidating how their structural characteristics influence fracture mechanics and treatment options. Special attention is given to the diverse types of fractures, particularly the differing tolerances for angular, shortening, and rotational deformities. The manuscript extensively reviews conservative treatment approaches, emphasizing the efficacy of non- surgical methods like modified braces and active mobilization techniques. Additionally, we provide a nuanced understanding of specific fracture types, such as neck fractures, highlighting their unique healing dynamics. This research offers valuable insights for orthopedic and plastic surgery practitioners, advancing the understanding and management of metacarpal fractures
