    Interesting finding here:

    Early Screw Fixation Versus Casting in the Treatment of Acute Jones Fractures
    The American Journal of Sports Medicine 33:970-975 (2005)

     
  2. I have used tension band wiring for Jones fractures for the past 20 years and think that this type of internal fixation make more sense mechanically than screws. Placing the fixation device on the tension side of the fracture seems to me the most mechanically sound method of treating these fractures.

    Tension Banding Was Great For The Elbow When I Was A Resident, But Now I Would Use A Canullated Sscrew With A C-arM And A Small Stab Incision.
