    Metacarpal fractures are common and can be functionally disabling. The majority are managed non-operatively. When surgical intervention is indicated, various methods of fixation are available with the utility of each being based on injury pattern, patient function and surgeon preference. Early mobilization, especially in case of open reduction and internal fixation, is a critical component of treatment to prevent stiffness and restore function. When possible, a fixation construct that can withstand the applied forces of early postoperative motion is chosen. We provide an updated description for diagnosis, treatment options and operative fixation for metacarpal fractures.
