The mallet finger was caused by the rupture of the terminal tendon at its distal insertion on the dorsal aspect of the distal phalangeal base and resulted in the flexion of the DIPJ. This type injury was often accompanied by the avulsion fracture of the dorsal aspect of the distal phalanx base [Figure 9].
Mallet finger results from the forced flexion of the extended DIPJ [Figure 9].[29],[30],[33],[34],[35] This type of injury is typically observed in softball, basketball, baseball, volleyball, or in receivers in football.[16],[17],[36] Posner [37] ever stated that the mallet finger was the most common closed tendon injury seen in sports, while there were only 12 cases in the 44 patients with sports-related deformity in our study.
