A East Coast Titians travel girls’ softball player, age 13, injured her finger at a practice session. The TurnKey FCS is an external fixator designed to obtain and maintain concentric reduction of an acute, unstable dorsal fracture dislocation of the PIP joint. Six weeks post-surgery the TurnKey FCS was removed. The patient reports no pain with functional motion. At now 7 weeks post-surgery, the patient is eager to return to Ocean City for some beach time.
