Locking Compression Plate Distal Ulna Hook Plate as Alternative Fixation for Fifth Metatarsal Base Fracture – Corrected Proof

Abstract: Intramedullary screw fixation has been the most common treatment for fifth metatarsal base fractures. However, screw application will not achieve accurate reduction in fractures with small fragments, osteoporotic bone, or Lawrence zone 1 fractures. Because of the similar anatomic architecture between the distal ulna and the fifth metatarsal base, the purpose of the present study was to assess the results of a locking compression plate distal ulna hook plate in stabilizing displaced zone 1 or 2 fifth metatarsal base fractures
