Pellatt R, Fomin I, Pienaar C, Bindra R, Thomas M, Tan E, Mervin C, Zhang P, Keijzers G. Ann Emerg Med. 2019 Jul;74(1):88-97. doi: 10.1016/j.annemergmed.2019.01.032. Epub 2019 Mar 8. PMID: 30853124
CONCLUSION: We found that patients with boxer's fractures who were randomized to buddy taping had functional outcomes similar to those of patients randomized to plaster cast at 12 weeks. We advocate a minimal intervention such as buddy taping for uncomplicated boxer's fractures.
