Injuries to the collateral ligament of the proximal interphalangeal joints are relatively common. However, there is no clear consensus on the proper treatment of these injuries. Thirteen acute complete ruptures of the collateral ligament of the proximal interphalangeal joint were repaired primarily using a Mitek? suture anchor. Active finger exercise was started gently with buddy taping two weeks postoperatively. All were able to have the activity of daily living within 6 weeks and return to their original work within 12 weeks. Pain was completely relieved and loss of joint motion averaged 20˚. A stable joint was achieved in each case, with no recurrent instability. Suture anchor technique can be recommended as a simple and effective method of repairing the collateral ligament of fingers.
