Clinical: Ski injury
Dx: Complete avulsion of the ulnar collateral ligament at the first metacarpophalangeal joint from the phalangeal attachment. There is approximately 7 mm of proximal retraction of the torn ligament with interposition of the adductor aponeurosis between the retracted ligament and the phalangeal attachment. These findings are consistent with a Stener lesion.
