    Peri-articular fractures of the hand are common injuries. Long-term consequences can be relatively innocuous or severely disabling. Due to the specific anatomy of the hand, avulsion fractures are likely more common here than anywhere else in the body and often occur at or near joints. The management of peri-articular fractures of the hand requires consideration of both the articular reduction and the status of ligament and tendon attachments. In general, these fractures can be treated non-operatively. Operative treatment can be percutaneous or open and should be individualized.
