Although typically reported in thumb and small fingers, collateral ligament ruptures of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints have been described in all digits. Traditional open repair requires a dissection that violates the sagittal band and may result in increased scarring and decreased hand function. Arthroscopic repair of MCP collateral ligaments has not been previously described. We present a new technique for repairing MCP collateral ligaments arthroscopically.
