Fracture immobilization with Buddy taping is not inferior to Splint immobilization for non-displaced extra-articular paediatric finger fractures. However, whether the same applies for reduced finger fractures is unclear.


Displaced fractures will be reduced in the paediatric ED by Emergency physicians. After fracture reduction, fracture immobilization will either be done with a Splint immobilization or a fingertaping. After 4 and 21 days, clinical and radiographic controls will take place at the Hand surgery outpatient clinic.
