AbstractWe report a prospective study of 245 open digital fractures of the hand in 201 patients. Management followed clear guidelines set out in protocol. The incidence of infection (2.04%) and non-union (2.45%) was low. Proximal phalangeal fractures and comminuted fractures did worst and associated significant soft tissue injuries had a particularly deleterious effect on the outcome. A classification based on the different soft-tissue components involved is proposed. In fractures associated with simple lacerations or isolated digital nerve injury only, one can expect about 40% good results and about 25% poor results. Where extensor tendon injury or extensive skin loss are also present, there will be approximately 18% good results and 50% poor results. If there is also injury to the flexor tendon or more than one component of significant soft-tissue damage, about 80% will be poor and good results are rare.
