Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

In this study, we aim to identify an optimal proximal interphalangeal (PIP) fusion angle that will preserve pinch strength and dexterity as well as maximize performance in daily functional activities. Study results will facilitate better occupational therapy treatment outcomes and occupational performance.
