Conclusions: In order to minimize catastrophic disability and repeated suicide attempts, a balanced multidisciplinary approach is one of the best methods to obtain excellent functional outcomes and prevent repeated injuries in patients with self-inflicted wrist lacerations.

A 34-year-old male patient developed scaphoid nonunion with necrosis in both fragments. A scaphoid replacement was performed using a titanium custom-made 3D-printed implant. At 1-year follow-up, good clinical and radiographic outcome was obtained. Titanium custom-made 3D-printed implants may offer a good surgical solution for patients requiring total scaphoid replacement.

Conclusions: HA and CS injection has a comparable therapeutic effect in treatment of trigger digits. However, CS injection has higher efficacy of pain and inflammation reduction in the early phase of the disease.

Conclusions: Thumb UCL repair with suture tape augmentation demonstrates short-term outcomes comparable to what has been reported for other methods of repair. It may potentially allow for an expedited recovery and rehabilitation process.

We report a case of aneurysmal bone cyst of proximal phalanx of middle finger in a 2 year old child treated at our tertiary care hospital. The diagnosis was confirmed with pre-operative MRI, FNAC and post-operative histopathology. Curettage of the lesion and autologous bone grafting was performed. The hand was immobilized in a short below elbow slab for 4 weeks followed by physiotherapy. Excellent radiological and functional outcomes were obtained with no recurrence at a 5 year of follow up.

Conclusions: We consider that a distal hypothenar perforator free flap has a high degree of usability for a medium-sized defect such as the whole finger pulp. In the future, whether sensory nerve branches of this flap should be sutured will need to be clarified.

Conclusions: Fibular strut and additional bone grafting (FIBBAG) is one of the viable options for reconstruction of post osteomyelitic forearm defects in children with low procedural complication rate.

Conclusions: The use of the bridge plate technique may be an effective alternative treatment for patients with comminuted hamatometacarpal fracture-dislocations.

Conclusions: Block UDPTCP is a safe and convenient material for the treatment of distal radius fracture and is replaced within a suitable time period after grafting into the fracture site. UDPTCP and stable internal fixation is therefore a reliable strategy for restoring and preserving anatomical position, especially in the elderly population.
