One hundred and seven patients with shaft fractures of the proximal phalanx were randomized to receive surgical fixation using Kirschner wires (K-wires) and bone cement (n=56; 67 cases) or fixation with a plate-and-screw system (n=51; 64 cases). The outcomes of interest included operative time, time to fracture union, incidence of non-union, rehabilitation therapy time, the incidence of additional...
