Fig. 14. Complex dislocation of the metacarpophalangeal joint. The metacarpal head is trapped in a noose existing in the space between the profundus tendon and lumbrical muscle. The sesamoid bone is trapped within the joint space. Each of these events may prevent closed reduction, and the digital nerve stretched over the metacarpal head is at risk for injury during open reduction.
