Metacarpal fractures are common. Stable, extra-articular fractures can often be treated non-operatively with or without closed reduction, splinting and then mobilisation with buddy taping. Unstable or displaced extra-articular fractures, where adequate reduction cannot be maintained, and most intra-articular fractures require osteosynthesis. The goal for any treatment is early mobilisation. Intra-articular fractures, open fractures and certain paediatric fractures can lead to poor functional outcome; hence, referral to a hand surgeon is recommended in this review.
