Proximal interphalangeal joint dislocations are injuries observed frequently and caused by axial loading on the finger in the extension. As a result of such traumas applied on the finger which is in hyperextension, many injuries may occur like incomplete volar plate injury, collateral bond injury, extension or flexor tendon rupture, and traumatic extensor tendon dislocation. Volar plate rupture in the mid-phalanx or bone fractures with small fragments may also be observed. Closed reduction, external fixation, splint, pinning, open reduction, and volar plate fixation may be applied in the treatment. This article presents a traumatic open finger dislocation due to a ball hitting a wrestler. It was successfully treated with reduction and the volar plate and collateral bond fixation were applied with absorbable sutures.
